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 (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.

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).
