Troy announces round three of leaf collection

For the Miami Valley Today

TROY — On Thursday, Dec. 16, city of Troy street crews will commence the third and final round of the scheduled leaf pick-up. A map showing anticipated pickup dates by address is available at the city website at www.troyohio.gov/leaf-map.

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 yard waste bags curbside on their regular trash collection day. After the final leaf pick-up, this option will still be available to residents.

As in the past, the leaf pick-up will be by zones. The description of the zones and dates for each are as follows:

Zone 1: The area bound on the east by the Corporation line and Ridge Avenue, on the north and west by the Corporation line and on the south by West Main Street, south on I-75 and the Corporation line. Pick-up scheduled for Thursday, Dec. 16 through Wednesday Dec. 22.
