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 7. We will then proceed in numerical order to Districts 8, 9, 10, 11 then Districts 1, 2 & 3.  Districts 4,5  & 6 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.

D.E.S.C. Redevelopment

In 1993 the City of Kettering learned that a long standing employer, the Gentile Air Force Base, would be closed as part of the ’93 Base Realignment and Closure process. In an effort to recreate job opportunity, and to redevelop the base into a site for new industry, the City created the Kettering Business Park.
The Kettering Business Park officially opened in 1997, complete with underground fiber optic communications, underground utilities, new roadways and much more. In a short time, more than 1,500 jobs and 8,000 square feet have been filled by established companies such as GE Capital, the National Composite Center, the Kettering Municipal Court and Fire Department headquarters.
This 165-acre Park is an ideal location for corporate headquarters, research and development or light industry.
