Weekly Update October 30th, 2017 - Round 1


The Road Department will begin the 2017 Leaf Collection Program on October 30th 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)
Singing Hills plat- West Alex Bell Road to Bishop Liebold schools (East side of SR 741)
Vienna Park plat- Munger Road to Mad River Road
Kingswood plat- Both sides of Mad River Road North of the Dayton Mall
Villages of Miami plat- SR 741 to Washington Church Road South of the Dayton Mall
Crains Run plat- Off Miamisburg Springboro Road & Crains Run Road
Quail Creek plat- Off Medlar Road
Rural Roadways- East and West of  Great Miami River
Chautauqua plat- West of  Great Miami River
Bear Creek Estates plat- West of  Great Miami River


Three crews began the week on October 30th in the Huber plat and completed the plat.

Weekly Update November 6th, 2017 - Round 1


Crews began the week in.... Offices are closed on November 10th to honor the Veterans Day holiday.

Weekly Update November 13th, 2017 - 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.

Weekly Update November 27th, 2017 - Begin Round  2 (Last Round)


Crews started the week in Huber plat to begin Round 2 and will follow the plat progression schedule outlined above.  This begins the final round of collection. Upon completing each street and plat after November 27th, crews will not be returning for a 3rd round to collect leaves regardless of the situation, tree species' habits or size of leaf pile raked curbside after the November 27th deadline. Please dispose of yard waste per Waste Management collection requirements.

Crews began the week and the last round in Huber plat on November 27th.

Please dispose of yard waste per Waste Management collection requirements or mulch leaves with a lawnmower.

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.
