Some Dayton Neighborhoods to Experience Change In Regular Waste Collection Day

City’s Shift to 4-Day collection Schedule Begins March 1st

Release Date: Friday, February 19, 2010

Contact: Fred Stovall, Director of Public Works, 333-4070

Beginning Monday, March 1st, some Dayton neighborhoods will experience a change in their normal waste collection schedule. The permanent change is a result of a shift to a four-day (Mon.-Thurs.) waste collection cycle, with Fridays to be used for pre-scheduled bulk waste pick-ups and other special operations.

After March 1, Recycling pick-ups will continue to occur every-other week, but bulky waste pick-up will be limited to once a month, and they must be scheduled in advance by calling 333-4800. Waste collection services will not occur on holidays.

“The City of Dayton is maintaining high quality services while responding to the realities of difficult economic times,” Fred Stovall, Director of the Department of Public Works, said. “The change in our waste collection schedule will enhance our overall efficiency. The biggest impact on some residents will be to modify their habits slightly to adapt to a new pick-up day.”

Stovall said residents should look for a brochure now being mailed to all residential properties outlining the new waste collection schedule and other service changes for 2010. The brochure is customized by location to reflect accurate neighborhood information. Information is also available by calling the Public Works Call Center at 333-4800 or on the City’s web site at www.cityofdayton.org. (A neighborhood map showing the new collection days is linked here.)

The following is a schedule by day and neighborhood for basic waste collection service, effective March 1:

Monday: College Hill; Cornell Heights; Dayton View Triangle; Fairview; Five Oaks; Grafton Hill; Hillcrest; McPherson; Mount Vernon; North Riverdale; Old Dayton View; Philadelphia Woods; Princeton Heights; Riverdale; Santa Clara; Southern Dayton View; University Row; and Wesleyan Hill.

Tuesday: Arlington Heights; Carillon; Edgemont; Fairlane; Five Points; Germantown Meadows; Greenwich Village; Highview Hills; Lakeview; Little Richmond; MacFarlane; Madden Hills; Miami Chapel; Northern Hills; Pineview; Residence Park; Roosevelt; Stoney Ridge; Westwood; and Wolf Creek.

Wednesday: Belmont; Eastmont; Hearthstone; Linden Heights; Midtown; Patterson Park; Shroyer Park; South Park; Twin Towers; University Park; and Walnut Hills.

Thursday: Burkhardt; DeWeese; Downtown; Eastern Hills; Forest Ridge/ Quail Hollow; Gateway; Historic Inner; Kittyhawk; McCook Field; Northridge; Old North Dayton; Oregon; Pheasant Hill; Springfield; Webster Station; and Wright View.

Stovall also noted that in the Fall, curbside leaf collection will be replaced by a bagged collection service. Rather than raking leaves to the curb, residents should bag leaves in 100 percent biodegradable bags (available at most hardware stores) and set them at the curb line. As an alternative, residents will be able to drop off leaves at three composting locations: behind Lohrey Center (2366 Glenarm Ave.); the Gettysburg Landfill (1826 Gettysburg Ave.) and behind the Wegerzyn Garden Center (1303 E. Siebenthaler Ave).

Pay Parking Tickets Online.

Motorists issued citations by City of Dayton parking enforcement can now conveniently pay fines online at the Dayton Municipal Court’s www.PayMyFine.org, usually on the same day the citation is written.

Enforcement personnel are now issuing most citations by electronic, hand-held devices that download data into the Court’s billing and payment system at the end of each workday. These tickets are usually payable online after 6:00 p.m., using VISA or MasterCard. Handwritten tickets are also usually payable online within 24 hours of issuance.

Unpaid parking tickets issued since October of 1991 are now searchable by name, ticket number or license plate number at www.PayMyFine.org. Criminal and traffic fines may also be paid at www.PayMyFine.org, except in cases where a warrant has been issued.

“This is one more way the City of Dayton and the Dayton Muncipal Court are using technology to improve customer service while strengthening efficiency,” said Clerk of Court Mark Owens.
