Bulk Waste Pick Up Information

Dayton’s Division of Waste Collection offers bulk waste pick-up service each Friday for those items that are too large or inappropriate for the regular green trash can. Residents must schedule a bulk waste pick up in advance by calling the Public Works all Center at 333-4800. The operator may ask a series of questions to identify exactly what materials are being collected. This is necessary to determine which piece of equipment to send to the scene and because some guidelines may apply. For example, metal objects must be separated from other items; refrigerators must first have the doors removed for safety reasons; and hazardous materials or rocks/bricks/gravel are not accepted. To schedule a bulk waste pick-up, call 333-4800 in advance. Residents can call between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m.

Tire Dumping

The City of Dayton and Montgomery County are working together to stop illegal tire dumping, but we need everyone’s help. Dumped tires are a serious problem because they are a breeding ground for mosquitoes and rodents, create a fire hazard, attract other illegal dumping, and are difficult to remove. It’s also very costly to clean-up dumped tires and can delay mowing efforts on vacant lands. If you see someone hauling more than 10 tires or illegally dumping tires, contact the “Report-A-Litterer” line. Try to get the license plate number, make of the vehicle, time of day, location, and date. You can send it in online or by phone at 225-4999. Anyone with scrap tires to get rid of should call the City of Dayton Bulky Waste number at 333-4800 and they will pick-up up to 10 tires per household a year for free. In addition, Montgomery County residents can drop off up to 10 tires per resident a year for free at the Solid Waste District Transfer Station at 2550 Sandridge Dr.
