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.

Points of Light

Kettering Citizen Police Academy Alumni has been selected as a National Point of Light. The Daily Points of Light Award is given by the Points of Light Foundation, the Knights of Columbus, and the Corporation for National Service.
It is designed to honor individuals and organizations who have made a commitment to connect Americans through service to help meet critical needs in their communities and to the nation, especially those focused on the goals for children and youth set by the President’s Summit for America’s Future.
The Kettering Citizen Police Academy Alumni assists the Kettering Police Department by performing a multitude of tasks that free up the officers to do more specialized work and concentrate on solving various problems. In mid-1993, the KPD initiated a Citizen Police Academy, which consists of 10 weekly classes to inform interested citizens about the work of the police department.
Two citizens from the early classes were so impressed by the actual services provided by the department that they wanted to help the police enhance their services and formed the Kettering Police Academy Alumni organization. Since the organization’s inception, the 103 Citizen Police Academy Alumni volunteers have donated more than 12,000 hours of service.
The Daily Points of Light Award honors an individual or organization that makes a positive and lasting difference in the lives of others. Our volunteers certainly have achieved this.
There were over 3,500 nominations for this award. In addition to receiving this award, the KCPAAA received congratulatory letters from President Bill Clinton, President George Bush and Robert K. Goodwin, CEO of Points of Light Foundation.
