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.

Rape Aggression Defense System (R.A.D.)

The Kettering Police Department offers Rape Aggression Defense (RAD) classes to teach women the elements of protecting themselves. This is the largest women’s self-defense system in the country.
The Rape Aggression Defense System is a program of realistic, self-defense tactics and techniques. The RAD System is a comprehensive course for women that begins with awareness, prevention, risk reduction and avoidance, while progressing on to the basics of hands-on defense training. RAD is not a Martial Arts program. The course is taught by certified RAD instructors.


The RAD System is growing in popularity due to the ease, simplicity and effectiveness of tactics used, solid research, legal defensibility and unique teaching methodology. The RAD System is dedicated to teach women defensive concepts and techniques against various types of assault by utilizing easy, effective and proven self defense tactics. This system of realistic defense will provide women with the knowledge to make an educated decision about resistance.
Upon course completion, students are encouraged to attend refresher courses to practice.
