Baseball Fields

It is with sad news that the Village has had to close the baseball fields for games and practices due to a case of Covid-19 that has affected a player. This has also had an affect on other players, outside teams, and their families. The Mayor and Administration will be making a decision on closing the basketball courts and quarry operation. This decision is not easy, but it is our responsibility to keep the families and employees that use and maintain our facilities safe.

Trash Removal / Waste Management

WASTE MANAGEMENT WEEKLY REFUSE PROGRAM

Attention Genoa Residents:

 
The Village of Genoa recently signed a new 3-year contract with Waste Management for garbage pickup. This new contract includes some significant changes in an effort to keep GARBAGE RATES as LOW as possible.
 
Beginning April 1st, 2020 Waste Management will no longer be collecting curb side RECYCLING. Residents who have recycling bins may either keep them for their personal use, (free of charge) or return them to the Administration Office.
 
All residents will be provided a 96-gallon TOTE, (at no extra cost) and all garbage pickup will be curbside (only) on public streets the day of collection.
 
Garbage that is placed outside of the tote, or in the alley will no longer be collected. This is due to Waste Management’s new next generation trucks with auto pick-up. These trucks unfortunately are not designed to collect garbage that is placed on top of or alongside of the totes, and these trucks are also too large to maneuver in the alleys.
 
Residents are allowed one Bulk Item per month that will be collected on a specific scheduled day.
 
Each resident will soon be receiving a tote and an informational flyer from Waste Management. This flyer will review all of the changes mentioned above.
 
All future questions and concerns relating to your garbage pick-up should now be directed to Waste Management. You may contact them at the number listed in the flyer that will be provided, so please place the flyer in a convenient location.
 
We Thank you in advance for your help in making this transition.
