IN THIS EDITION


  
LEAF COLLECTION SERVICE
The city is divided by districts and crews work through the districts in numerical order in several rounds.  Our recommendation is that you begin raking leaves as soon as they begin to fall and keep raking as needed throughout the fall.   Simply keep the pile in your yard at the curb edge and rest assured that our team will be back around to collect them. As always, leaves will be picked up and taken to the City's leaf composting center where it will be converted to leaf mulch and compost.

Please remember the following tips for leaf pickup:
  • Call 296-3255 (FALL) or VISIT OUR WEBSITE to find your leaf district and to see the current district where crews are completing leaf pick up.
  • Prior to collection, rake your leaves to the edge of your yard along the curb, but not into the street where they will block traffic and cause a hazard.
  • Do not bag your leaves or block storm drains.
  • Make sure leaves are not under, between or around parked cars.
  • Please don't rake anything except leaves out to the curb for pick-up. Branches, sticks, grass and other yard waste clog the machinery and throw the crews off schedule.

KETTERING THANKS OUR VOLUNTEERS 
 
 
The annual Volunteer Recognition Luncheon was held Thursday, November 2 at Presidential Banquet Center. From July 1, 2016 - June 30, 2017 our dedicated force of 1,156 volunteers donated 32,732 hours of service to the City of Kettering! Since its inception in 1979, the volunteer program has positively impacted our city in a variety of ways including saving our city $783,931! Now that's a reason to celebrate! 

 

Volunteers celebrated "50's" style as many dressed in "50's" attire. "Elvis" was on site to greet our volunteers while they enjoyed favorite tunes from the "50's" and a diner style lunch.
Mayor Patterson presented volunteers with awards and certificates based on hours achieved.  

 
In addition, the Kettering Volunteer Advisory Council presented the 2017 Partnership Award to Town & Country Shopping Center. This award recognizes outside organizations that make significant contributions to the betterment of our community through continued service and dedication.
