Safe Routes to School Grant

Got this email today. Thought I would share it.

Good Morning!
Some of you may have already heard the news...but it has been officially anounced. Cleveland NSC, Kate Ervin, and The City of Dayton have worked on the Safe Routes to School grant for a while, and the Cleveland neighborhood has been awarded $125,813! $100,000.00 will go towards infrastructure: improving pedestrian access to school by updating crosswalks, walks, lighting near school and park, adding a bike rack...etc. $25,813 will go towards education, encouragement and enforcement leg of Dayton's overall plan. Cleveland NSC will be hosting it's first Bike Rodeo tomorrow for Healthy Kids Day!
Have a great day!

Waste Collection Route Revisions Are in Effect

Waste Collection Route Revisions Are in Effect

Pickup Days Unchanged, Times May Change

Release Date: Friday, April 3, 2009

Contact: Division of Waste Collection, 333-4800

Waste collection customers served by the City of Dayton (in the cities of Dayton and Riverside and Jefferson Township) may experience revised pick-up times as a result of route changes implemented on March 30. Scheduled collection days have not changed. Waste collection crews will still travel normal service routes from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. However, residents may notice crews collecting waste at different times of the day than in the past. The route revisions have been implemented to help reduce operating costs. To contact the Division of Waste Collection, call 937-333-4800.

The following are reminders for Dayton waste collection customers:

Guidelines for setting out waste and recycling for collection:

· Keep containers away from parked cars and other obstacles.

· Waste containers and recycle bins must be at designated collection areas by 7:00 a.m. on scheduled collection days.

· Waste containers and recycle bins must be removed from designated pickup areas by 8:00 a.m. on the day after pickup.

· Waste collection crews will not enter private property for pickup services.

· Do not overfill containers or recycle bins.

· Do not put loose trash in waste containers. Please wrap or bag all trash first.

· Do not overfill waste containers or recycle bins, to help keep neighborhoods clean.

· Recyclable materials are: glass, aluminum, tin, plastic (#1 through #7), newspapers, magazines, cardboard, or other material determined by the City.

How do I schedule a “bulk” waste pick-up?

· Bulk waste pick-ups must be scheduled in advance by calling 937-333-4800 between 7:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.

· Bulk waste items should be set out by 7:00 a.m. on the pre-scheduled collection day.

· One pick-up equals material totaling 4 feet x 8 feet x 4 feet in size.

· Separate metal items (stoves, refrigerators, etc.) from other bulk items. Remember to remove refrigerator doors.

· All loose and small items must be securely contained, bundled or bagged.

· Crews cannot pick up concrete, rocks, brick, blocks, sand, gravel, demolition materials or hazardous waste.

· Yard waste (brush, hedges, tree limbs, etc.) must be tied into bundles not larger than 4 ft. long and 18 inches in diameter. Bundles are limited to 25 pounds each.
