Check the city’s website at www.troyohio.gov for a listing of acceptable and prohibited items for this facility.

With warmer weather and residents cleaning up their yards, the following is a reminder regarding the city’s brush and yard waste collection services:

• Brush must be cut into 4’ lengths, bundled and tied, and then placed at the front of the residence for collection by the city.

• The city will not collect any brush that includes the root system, any top outs, or totally removed bushes or brush.

• Items such as weeds, leaves, grass, twigs and sticks can only be picked up by the city if they are placed in T-bags. These T-bags can be purchased from the Billing & Collection Office at City Hall or the True Value Hardware Store on South Market Street at a cost of $1.25 per bag.

• Any of these items can also be taken to the Dye Mill Road Facility starting March 14.
