On Monday, October 13, the City of Troy street crews will commence round one of the annual leaf collection. City crews will 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 (click on link provided) 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 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 remains open until November 29, 2014. Residents can also place leaves in the City of Troy Yard Waste Bags (T-bags). 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.
