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 8. We will then proceed in numerical order to Districts 9, 10, 11 then Districts 1, 2 & 3.  Districts 4 - 7 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.

Safety Programs and Procedures

The personal safety and health of each employee of the City of Kettering is of primary importance. The City’s objective is to reduce the number of injuries and illnesses to an absolute minimum, with the goal of zero accidents and injuries each year.

The cost of accident and injuries in lost productivity, medical expense and material replacement take away from the resources available to perform the City’s primary missions. City management strives to provide a safe working environment with all safety aids and protection necessary for personal safety.

The City aims to adopt the best safety management practices, in order to achieve our goal of zero accidents and injuries. A safety committee promotes employee involvement and cooperation, increases communication, encourages joint planning, recommendations and decision-making and assists in the development and review of the various elements of the Safety Program.

To be successful, a Safety Program must encourage the proper behavior and focus on injury prevention. The City, Safety Committee, Safety Coordinator and employees aim to achieve that success through communication, training and continual review and improvement of the Safety Program. Additional details on safety may be found in the Administrative Policies and Procedures – Series 400: Safety and Health.
