Dayton's Bagged Leaf Collection Pickup Service Begins October 28

DAYTON -- The City of Dayton has kicked off its seasonal bagged leaf collection program by mailing personalized collection schedules to Dayton residents.

The bagged leaf collection service offers four pickups during the eight-week collection period beginning October 28. Citizens are reminded that leaves must be bagged in biodegradable bags and placed at the curb; leaves raked loosely to the street will not be collected.

Dayton residents should look for a green and white flier in the mail that outlines the bagged leaf collection process, provides leaf pick up schedules for individual neighborhoods, and includes a coupon for 10 free biodegradable leaf collection bags.

Coupons for free bags (available while supplies last) may be presented at any of the following locations:
East End Community Center, 624 Xenia Ave. (8 a.m.-5 p.m., Mon.-Fri.)
Dayton Cultural & RTA Transit Center, 40 S. Edwin C. Moses Blvd.
Greater Dayton Recreation Center, 2021 W. Third St.
Lohrey Recreation Center, 2366 Glenarm Ave.
Northwest Recreation Center, 1600 Princeton Dr.
City Hall Lobby, 101 W. Third St. (8 a.m.-5 p.m., Mon.-Fri.)

In addition to using the mailer, residents can also identify their four leaf collection dates by visiting, clicking on the interactive map, and typing in their home address.

The bagged leaf collection process requires residents to place leaves in 100 percent biodegradable bags (plastic not accepted) and to set the bags at the curb line for pickup, even if their waste collection is usually in an alley. Bagged leaves must be placed at the curb by 7 a.m. on the scheduled collection day. The biodegradable leaf bags should be placed separately from normal waste collection/recycling containers.

Leaves raked to the curb and not placed in bags will not be included in the Citys complimentary collection service. The City of Dayton will bill property owners $75 if City crews have to remove loose leaves raked improperly to the street.

Residents just have to remember to place bagged leaves at the curb on the same day their recycling is collected, Director of Public Works Fred Stovall said. And since we collect recycling every other week, theyll have four opportunities to have their leaves picked up this fall.

As an alternative to bagging, residents can drop off leaves at area composting sites. From October 28 through December 13, residents can deposit leaves at the three composting locations between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. Monday through Friday, noon to 5 p.m. on Saturday, or 1 to 5 p.m. on Sunday. Leaves may be dropped at these sites without a paper bag, but they must be emptied from plastic bags. No grass, sticks, or other debris should be included.

Lohrey 2366 Glenarm Ave., behind the Lohrey Recreation Center at Belmont maintenance building.
Gettysburg Landfill 1826 Gettysburg Ave., north of James H. McGee Blvd.
Wagner Ford Landfill 2670 Wagoner Ford Rd., across from Grafton Kennedy School.
