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.


What is KetterGreen?
The City of Kettering is committed  to working locally to improve the social, economical and environmental well being of our community.  As part of this commitment, the City has formed KetterGreen, a committee that helps promote and organize environmental events within the City facilities as well as the community. Events KetterGreen has hosted or organized over the last year are prescription drug drop offs to prevent these medications from going down our streams, hazardous household waste drop off, and document shredding.  In addition to these events, KetterGreen has successfully implemented a better recycling program within city owned facilities and new recycling bins throughout our great parks.  There are many more event that are being planned so we encourage you stop back at this page to get the latest news.
The City invites you to visit the Habitat Environmental Center located at 3036 Bellflower Street, Kettering, Ohio.  This is where many of the City’s environmental classes will take place.  Check out the great new playground and walking trails around the Center.
