Geneva Revises Curbside Leaf Collection Schedule

Leaves

The City of Geneva has adjusted the third – and final – curbside leaf pickup schedule for all zones to provide additional time for leaves to reach the ground.

Trees have been slow to drop their leaves this year due to the dry summer and unseasonably warm start to the fall season. To accommodate Mother Nature, the City has pushed back the final collection by at least a week. The revised schedule, which is posted on the City’s website, is subject to change in case of inclement weather or equipment failure.

Geneva’s contractor has completed its first pickup, and the ongoing second round is taking place as originally scheduled, weather permitting.

The City’s curbside leaf pickup is divided into three geographical zones, with each zone collected three times using vacuum truck equipment. Every street will be targeted once during each of the three separate leaf pickups. Each zone takes several days to complete.

A progress map and full program details can be found on the City’s website. Residents are encouraged to check the web page frequently for the latest information. Questions can be directed to the City’s Public Works Department by calling 630-232-1501.

Leaf Bag Program

After the curbside pickup concludes, residents who are still looking to dispose of leaves in December can participate in the City’s leaf bag collection program.

Leaves should be placed in brown yard waste bags. Refuse stickers are not required, but bags must only contain leaves. Yard waste, mulch or grass clippings mixed with leaves will not be accepted.

Bags should be set outside with the garbage on residents’ regular refuse collection day. The final pickup will be the week of Dec. 27.
