Troy leaf collection begins Oct. 18

For the Miami Valley Today

TROY — On Monday, Oct. 18, the city of Troy’s annual leaf pick-up will begin. City crews plan to make a total of three leaf collection rounds through the city. A map showing anticipated pickup dates by address is available at 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, and rocks.

• Rake leaves to the street one foot out from the curb. Leaving this space between the curb and the leaves will allow drainage of rainwater. Do not block catch basins with piles of leaves.

• Do not place leaf piles around or between parked cars.

Residents can also 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, Nov. 27. Residents can also place leaves in an approved yard waste bag curbside on their regular trash collection day.

Crews have been picking up leaves on an unscheduled basis. As in the past, the leaf pick-up will be by zones. The description of the zones and dates for each are as follows:
