Important City Service Update: Our annual leaf collection service was due to be complete last week, but has been extended through December 21 due to late leaf fall resulting in high volume and impact of ice storm debris.  Thank you for your patience.

We are in our final round of leaf & ice storm debris collection and crews are currently working in District 9. We will then proceed in numerical order to Districts 10, 11 then Districts 1, 2 & 3.  Districts 4 - 8 are done for the year, we will not be coming back through before spring.

Residents can visit this page to easily find their leaf district.

If we complete collection in your district and you still need to dispose of leaves you may either place them in your Waste Management toter for collection on your normal pick up day or you can take leaves to our Yard Debris Center on Woodman Center Drive through December 22nd. Yard Debris Center hours are Monday through Friday 3-8 PM and Saturday 9 AM – 3 PM.

Route 3 and the extension of route 6 have been signed through the city as of November, 2017. We hope to have additional routes signed this Spring.

In addition, Kettering has a Walk/Bike Committee made up of residents committed to promoting a bike and walk friendly community. The recommendations from their latest effort is below.

Two significant regional trails cross through Kettering.

 Regional Trail #9:
 Miami Valley Trails Website Info
Making its way along a preserved rail corridor, the Iron Horse Trail is a natural oasis in suburban southern Montgomery County.
Regional Trail #19:
The Dayton-Kettering Connector (“The DKC”) follows, in part, an historic rail line that served the NCR factories in south Dayton. Today it provides a beautiful, direct, not-too-steep, and safe route for cyclists to get from the densest parts of Montgomery County into downtown Dayton. Along the way you’ll pass some of the area’s important cultural institutions – The Fraze Pavilion and the University of Dayton.
