City of Troy to start final leaf collection Dec. 15


TROY — Street crews will start the city of Troy’s third and final round of scheduled leaf pick-up on Thursday, Dec. 15.

A map showing anticipated pickup dates by address is available online at

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

• Keep leaf piles free of routine yard waste, trash, and rocks.

• Rake leaves to the street one foot out from the curb. Leaving this space between the curb and the leaves will allow drainage of rainwater. Do not block catch basins with piles of leaves.

• Do not place leaf piles around or between parked cars.

Residents can also place leaves in paper bio-degradable yard waste bags, and place those bags curbside on their regular trash collection day.

The description of the zones and dates for each are as follows:
