Each fall, we pick-up the leaves residents rake to their curbside. The collected leaves are taken to our “leaf farm” where the material is processed and made into leaf compost. In the Spring, when the leaves have formed a rich compost, it is made available to the residents of Kettering for free!
Mulch & Compost Availability
Mulch and leaf compost is usually available starting the 2nd week of April and concludes for the season when we run out of material. It is free for Kettering residents!
- Proof of Kettering Residency is required when picking up mulch or compost.
- Volunteers from Kettering Citizens Police Academy will be on site to “spot check” vehicles for proof of residency or tax-payer status.
