Weekly Update November 5th, 2018 (Round #1)

The Road Department will begin the 2018 Leaf Collection Program on November 5th and start in the northern most section of the Township, near the City of Kettering / Moraine borders. Two leaf loaders will be used initially and a 3rd leaf loader and crew will join the process as necessary. The street sweeper will not be included in this year's program.

Reminder: Leaves should not be placed in the roadway. This creates a safety hazard for traveling motorists and automobiles parked on top of leaf piles. Leaves should be placed at the backside of curbs, easily accessible to leaf collection equipment. 

The collection cycles will proceed through the Township as follows:

  1. Huber subdivision- Stroop Road to Alex Bell Road (Near City of Moraine)
  2. Spring Valley subdivision- Alex Bell Road to Cox Arboretum (West side of SR 741)
  3. Singing Hills subdivision- West Alex Bell Road to Bishop Liebold schools (East side of SR 741)
  4. Vienna Park subdivision- Munger Road to Mad River Road
  5. Kingswood subdivision- Both sides of Mad River Road (North of the Dayton Mall)
  6. Villages of Miami subdivision- SR 741 to Washington Church Road (South of the Dayton Mall)
  7. Crains Run subdivision- Off Miamisburg Springboro Road & Crains Run Road (Near Austin Landing)
  8. Quail Creek subdivision- Entrances at Medlar Road (Near Pipestone Golf Course)
  9. Rural Roadways- East and West of Great Miami River
  10. Chautauqua subdivision- West of Great Miami River (Near City of Carlisle)
  11. Bear Creek Estates subdivision- West of Great Miami River

Weekly Update November 19th, 2018 (Round #1)

This week typically starts the largest volume of leaves to be collected for the season. Most of the varying tree species have dropped all leaves or are well into the process of leaf drop. Waxy leafed tree species are typically the last to drop leaves. We ask residents to please be patient with potential delays in the collection process this round and beyond due to the high volume of leaves and potentially adverse weather. Once crews have completed the first round, the process will accelerate.

Reminder: Leaves should not be placed in the roadway. This creates a safety hazard for traveling motorists and automobiles parked on top of leaf piles. Leaves should be placed at the backside of curbs, easily accessible to leaf collection equipment. 

Crews began the week in.... Operations are suspended on November 22nd and 23rd for the Thanksgiving holidays.

Weekly Update November 26th, 2018 (Round #2)

Three crews began the week in.....Nearly all leaves are now on the ground. We ask residents to please have all leaves curbside by November 26th.

Weekly Update December 3rd, 2018 (Round #2)

The three crews started the week in... Operations have slowed a bit due to the high volume of raked leaves and rainfall.

Weekly Update December 10th, 2018 (Continue Round #2)

Reminder: Leaves should not be placed in the roadway. This creates a safety hazard for traveling motorists and automobiles parked on top of leaf piles. Leaves should be placed at the backside of curbs, easily accessible to leaf collection equipment.

This will be the final round of the 2018 season. Crews will not return to collect leaves after this round has been completed. Trucks will be converted for use in snow removal operations.

We wanted to thank all residents choosing to mulch or compost leaves this year and encourage others to consider this option. Mulching supplies the turf with nutrients necessary for a healthy lawn, lowers program expenses, and accelerates the collection process. Mulching can be accomplished by raising the deck of the lawnmower and installing a blade designed for this activity.
