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.

Kettering Safety Village

Mission Statement
To teach basic concepts of traffic safety, to provide injury prevention awareness and life safety skills for children entering the kindergarten grade level.

Kettering Safety Village is a week-long transportation and life-safety program sponsored by the Dor-Wood Optimist Club. The City of Kettering’s Engineering Department Safety Section in collaboration with Kettering City Schools is proud to operate this program designed to teach our youngest citizens how to be safe.

Safety Village instructors are joined by Kettering police, fire and school personnel to provide age-appropriate classroom instruction on a variety of safety topics to participants. Children get to practice and reinforce what they’ve learned at our indoor Safety Village, with child-size replicas of streets, intersections and buildings. Children also participate in a variety of additional activities, including a ride on a Kettering school bus and a “Safe Walk” in a neighborhood.  Through classroom instruction and fun and exciting hands-on experience, young children will begin to develop safe habits for a lifetime.

Kettering Safety Village is FREE for children who are registering for Kindergarten in August 2018.

Sessions will be held June 18- July 20 at J.E. Prass Elementary School

Registration OPENS on April 16, 2018.
