Each year, Public Works collects wood debris from the chipper program and leaf material from the leaf program and these materials are taken to our Class IV compost facility and composted. Starting January 2, orders requests are taken throughout the Spring by the department for this free composted material for residents of the community.
Not only is the material free, but the City also delivers up to 10 Cubic Yards of materials to residents free of charge as well. A 2.5 Cubic Yard loads is equal to a pickup truck load. Contact us to get on the list for this great value. Mulch is available on a first come, first serve basis.
The debris removal program allows for residents to borrow a pickup truck or large dump truck to help them dispose of items that would not be accepted through the curbside pickup program.

Christmas trees may be placed at the curb similar to the chipper program and trees will be picked up with the regular chipper program and be disposed of through our mulch program.
Please remove all decorations and lights and DO NOT place the tree in a bag unless you intend for Rumpke to pick it up.
Leaf Collection Crew
The Public Works department performs leaf collection in the fall season as leaves begin to fall. This is a free service that is available to residents. We ask that residents rake leaves into piles or rows along the curb line. Please do not bag the leaves. To better help crews, please do not park in front of or near the leaf piles between the hours of 7:00 AM and 3:30 PM Monday through Friday to ensure that your leaves are collected.
Residents are advised to NOT place leaves in the street. During rain events, storm sewers may become blocked by leaves causing localized flooding on streets. Not placing leaves in the street also helps with water quality in the streams.
Unfortunately, yard waste debris like grasses and grass clippings can not be picked up by the City. Please place these items in bags and set them out for the trash to be removed by the trash hauler.
Leaf collection begins in October and the last day residents can bring leaves to the curb is December 1, 2017. This allows crews to cleanup existing leaves already placed curbside and still have time to prep the trucks and equipment for the upcoming winter weather season. Collection begins on the Westside of Route 4 and moves to the Eastside the following week.
The chipper program is available year round for tree branches and logs. Each week, the chipper makes its way through the City, starting on the Northwest side of the City and working South and East. We encourage residents to place branches and trimmings at the curb by 7:00 AM Monday morning. Do not place brush in the street. Stack brush as close to the curb as possible, with the cut end towards the curb. Stack piles so that branches do not become entangled and that logs are separate from branches. Bush stumps are accepted, however, the dirt must be removed from it. No stump grindings are accepted.
We are unable to collect tall (ornamental) grasses, vines, weeds, decayed firewood, or other forms of yard waste. This should be disposed of through regular trash service. Leaves are only accepted during the fall curbside leaf collection season. Railroad ties, landscape timbers, or other processed wood is also not accepted through the program or in the compost facility.
