Weekly Update October 31st, 2016 - Round 1


The Road Department will begin the 2016 Leaf Collection Program on October 31st and start in the northern most section of the Township, near the City of Kettering / Moraine borders. Two leaf loaders will be used initially and a 3rd leaf loader and crew will join the process as necessary. The street sweeper will  not be included in this year's program.

Reminder: Leaves should not be placed in the roadway. This creates a safety hazard for traveling motorists and automobiles parked on top of leaf piles. Leaves should be placed at the backside of curbs, easily accessible to leaf collection equipment.

The collection cycles will proceed through the Township as follows:


Huber plat- Stroop Road to Alex Bell Road
Spring Valley plat- Alex Bell Road to Cox Arboretum (West side of SR 741)

Weekly Update November 14th, 2016 - Round 1


This week typically starts the largest volume of leaves to be collected for the season. Most of the varying tree species have dropped all leaves or are well into the process of leaf drop. Waxy leafed  tree species are typically the last to drop leaves. We ask residents to please be patient with potential delays in the collection process this round  and beyond due to the high volume of leaves and potentially adverse weather. Once crews have completed the first round, the process will accelerate.

Reminder: Leaves should not be placed in the roadway. This creates a safety hazard for traveling motorists and automobiles parked on top of leaf piles. Leaves should be placed at the backside of curbs, easily accessible to leaf collection equipment.

All three crews began the week in the Huber plat on November 14th. Huber and Spring Valley were completed on November14th and crews started in Singing Hills on November 15th. On November 16th crews completed Singing Hills and moved into Vienna Park. By the end of the week Vienna Park, Kingswood, Villages of Miami, Crains Run, Quail Creek and Bear Creek Estates were completed.

Program Summary: This year Miami Township actually provided 5 rounds of leaf collection to every property instead of the originally advertised 2 rounds. This concludes the 2016 Leaf Collection program. Crews will begin converting all trucks over for snow removal operations.

We wanted to thank all residents choosing to mulch or compost leaves this year and encourage others to consider this option. Mulching supplies the turf with nutrients necessary for a healthy lawn, lowers program expenses, and accelerates the collection process. Mulching can be accomplished by raising the deck of the lawnmower and installing a blade designed for this activity.
