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.

Speed Watch

The Kettering Police Speed Watch Program was started in 1995 by Sergeant Wendell Willcox (now a lieutenant). The program still consists of active volunteers from Citizens Police Academy Class #1.
This group of volunteers is responsible for manning a Kettering Police Department Car that contains a radar and large speed display unit.
These volunteers are sent to different locations within Kettering 5 times a day Monday-Friday with additional times upon request. They observe vehicles, count the cars, and record the license numbers of vehicles who are doing 10 mph above the posted limit. The individuals observed 10mph above the limit are then sent a letter from the Chief of Police.
Recently the volunteers have been sent to specific neighborhoods to monitor the traffic patterns away from the main roads. These usually occur from citizens calling in about traffic problems in their area.
The volunteer’s ability to assist the patrol officers with the traffic complaints is of great benefit to the department and to the citizens who have called in on traffic problems.
