Troy to hold final round of leaf pickup


For the Miami Valley Today



TROY — On Thursday, Jan. 2, the city of Troy street crews will commence the third and final round of the scheduled leaf pick-up.

As with the first two rounds, the leaf pick-up will be by zones. A Leaf Collection Map is posted on the city website at www.troyohio.gov, which shows the zones and an anticipated collection schedule. A description of the zones and anticipated collection schedule is provided below.

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

• Keep leaf piles free of routine yard waste, tree limbs, trash, rocks, etc. These items can damage collection equipment and delay the collection process. See Yard Waste Collection for appropriate disposal of routine yard waste other than leaves.

• Rake leaves to the street one foot out from the curb. Leaving this space between the curb and the leaves will allow for drainage of the street when it rains.

• Do not block catch basins with piles of leaves. This can block the flow of rainwater and cause flooding.

• Do not place leaf piles around or between parked cars. Leaf piles between or around parked cars will not be collected.

This schedule is to be considered tentative, subject to weather and equipment delays. If there are questions on the leaf collection schedule, please call the city of Troy Central Service and Maintenance Facility at 335-1914 between the hours of 7 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
