The City of Xenia is pleased to announce we will be collecting leaves for residents at the curb this fall. As you may recall, last year’s collection was cancelled due to budget concerns. However, Leaf Crews will travel each city street only once this season. Cars parked too closely, other debris in the piles or leaves not raked to the curb ahead of the crews will not be collected. Resident will have to make other arrangements to dispose of these leaves. Citizens can also use alternate methods to dispose of their leaves. Leaves can be mulched or bagged. Rumpke will take up to 14 bags per residence each week on regular trash collection days. Bagged leaves can also be taken to the Greene County Recycling Center at 2145 Greene Way Boulevard (562-5925).
City Crews will be picking up leaves raked to the curb during the weeks listed below in the following neighborhoods:
The Week Of:
November 14-18: Northeast Section from Church St. and continuing north to include N. King, N. West, N. Galloway and the Beverly Hills, Summerbrooke and Kinsey Meadows neighborhoods.
November 21-25: Neighborhoods west of US 35 Bypass including New Arrowhead, Windsor Park, Reserve of Xenia, Sterling Green and Wright Cycle Estates.
November 28 -December 2: Southeast Section from Church St. and continuing south to include the East End, South End, South Hill and Old Arrowhead east of US 35 Bypass.
December 5-9 Zone 4: All Laynewood neighborhoods and the neighborhoods that include Charles, Maple and Center Street.
City Staff would like to remind citizens of these important points:
• Leaves need to be raked to the curb BEFORE the Monday on your pick up week. Crews
could be at your curb anytime during that week. Return trips to an area are not possible.
• It is very important that cars are not parked in the leaf pick up area. Crews cannot reach a
leaf pile if a car is parked within 10 feet.
• Piles must contain leaves only! Leafing equipment cannot pickup sticks, limbs or trash.
