On Monday, October 21, the City of Troy street crews will commence the annual leaf collection program. City crews have been picking up leaves on an unscheduled basis. City crews plan to make a total of three leaf collection rounds through the City. 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, 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 (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 can take their leaves to the Dye Mill Road facility in lieu of placing them in the street. The facility will remain open through Saturday, November 30. Residents can also place leaves in an approved yard waste bag made of compostable material. Yard waste bags can be disposed of two ways: collected weekly on the regular trash collection day at the resident's curb, or taken to the Dye Mill Road Compost Facility.
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 am – 3:30 pm, Monday through Friday.

Where possible, residents are asked to rake leaves one foot out of the gutter onto the street to allow drainage in the gutter. Vehicles should be removed from the streets during collection dates. Residents are reminded that foreign objects, limbs, etc. should be kept out of the leaves since they will damage collection equipment and slow the collection process.
