Residents are encouraged to recycle their grass clippings and yard debris by using it as mulch or compost material. Grass clippings are healthy for the yard as well as a good recycling technique.
The City will collect grass clippings, garden weeds, leaves, prunings, small amounts of brush, etc., if placed within the City provided refuse container. As an additional service to our residents, the following options are available for periodic, excessive yard debris that may not fit into the city provided container:
- Call the Public Works Department at (937) 428-4782 for a “special pickup”. Tree branches and limbs must be less than 10” in diameter and less than 8’ in length, and do not need to be tied or bundled. Grass clippings are not accepted. There is a $35 minimum fee for this special service.
- Tree branches, limbs, and other “woody” yard debris may be brought to the Public Works Center, 7970 S. Suburban Drive on Wednesdays between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m., and every third Saturday of the month between 9 a.m. and noon. Tree branches and limbs must be less than 10” in diameter and less than 8’ in length and do not need to be tied or bundled. Grass clippings, ornamental grasses and leaves are not accepted. This is a free service. Residents are required to show proof of residency.
