Leaf collection to continue


TROY — On Tuesday, Nov. 29, the city of Troy street crews will commence the third round of the annual leaf collection program. As in the past, the leaf pick-up will be by zones. A leaf collection map is posted on the City website 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, residents are asked to assist by:

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

• Rake leaves to the street 1 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 plug up/reduce the flow of rainwater, causing flooding issues.

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

Residents are asked to comply with this schedule so that leaves can be collected. Residents may also dispose of leaves by the use of city of Troy yard waste bags (T-bags). The only yard waste bags that will be collected by the city must be purchased from the Billing & Collection Office (1st floor of City Hall) or at True Value Hardware, 850 S. Market St. The cost of the bags is $1.25 each.

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 & Maintenance Facility at 335-1914 between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 3:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.
