Leaf Collection Round 2 Begins November 6

636

On Monday, November 6, Street Department staff will begin the second round of Troy’s annual leaf pickup program. City crews plan to make a total of three leaf collection rounds throughout the City. A map showing anticipated pickup dates by address is available on the City website at www.troyohio.gov/leaf-map.

To help provide efficient collection, the City asks that residents:

  • Keep leaf piles free of routine yard waste, trash, brush, and rocks.
  • Rake leaves to the street one foot out from the curb and out of catch basins. Leaving this space between the curb and the leaves will allow rainwater drainage. Do not block catch basins with piles of leaves.
  • Do not place leaf piles around or between parked cars.

Residents can take their leaves directly to the Dye Mill Road facility in yard waste bags made of compostable paper. The facility will remain open through Saturday, November 25, and will be closed on Thanksgiving. For hours, visit www.troyohio.gov/compost.

Residents can also place leaves in a compostable paper yard waste bag curbside on their regular trash collection day.
