Storm Debris Clean Up Procedures
Butler Township is offering brush/debris drop off from the storm at the Service Department located at 3710 West National Road starting Tuesday, July 3, for township residents only.
Due to the recent windstorm storm, the City of Centerville is expanding its brush drop off and pickup services. Centerville residents may drop off woody storm debris 8 a.m. - 4 p.m., Monday through Friday, through July 12 at the Public Works Center, 7970 S. Suburban Road. Note the offices will be closed on Wednesday, July 4.

Pre-Schedule Pick Up Thru Dayton Call Center - 333-4800
Free Drop Off at Wagner Ford Landfill
Dayton city residents with large amounts of storm debris can call the Public Works Call Center at 333-4800 to schedule a pick up. Tree limbs must be cut into lengths under five feet long and placed at the curb no later than Monday, July 9. Once pick-ups have been pre-scheduled, crews will collect debris by neighborhood area over the next few weeks. However, anyone scheduling a pick up must have the debris placed at the curbline by Monday, July 9.
Residents who want to help out in the meantime are encouraged to drop off storm debris for free at the Wagner Ford landfill, 2670 Wagner Ford Rd. The landfill is open 8:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. during the week, and 8:00 a.m. to noon on Saturday. However, this Saturday the Landfill will offer special extended hours from 8:00 a.m.-6:00 p.m.
Street Maintenance crews are continuing to follow-up to calls for service placed over the weekend. In some cases, crews responded to reports of trees and other debris blocking roads and sidewalks. To prioritize the many calls coming in, crews sometimes cleared the debris enough to allow immediate access for vehicles and pedestrians, without totally removing all of the debris from the surrounding area. Now workers are returning to any of those locations that have left-over materials to remove the remaining debris.
"With the large amount of debris across the city, this will be a lengthy collection process," said Fred Stovall, Director of the Department of Public Works. "We encourage everyone to be patient and do what they can to assist with the effort. In particular, if you have a pick-up truck or large vehicle, we urge you to take your and your neighbors’ debris to the Wagner Ford landfill and dump it there for free. That will be a big help in getting our neighborhoods back to normal."

City will continue curbside pick-up for a couple more weeks. Residents are asked to put storm debris curbside, stacking it neatly and making it as manageable as possible.
Tree limbs within the City that are downed by a storm will be removed by the City street crews. Below are the guidelines for this service:
- Free pickups will only occur after the Director of Administration announces a “Major Storm Pickup” (the Director will consult with the Street Superintendent before making the decision). There must be extensive damage to trees in the community before this service is activated. The announcement will be posted on this website and on local access cable (Channel 13 for CT customers and Channel 5 for
Time Warner customers).
- The service is only for major storm damage only—residents are not permitted to place non-storm damage at the curb under this program.
- This service is available for small to medium size damage as determined by the Street Superintendent or his designee. The property owner is responsible for having large sized damage removed.
- Tree limbs that are 4’ or shorter must be either bundled or in a yard waste bag. For tree limbs longer than 4’, place the limbs in a pile with the limbs in one direction.
- Residents must have the storm damage placed at the curb by the designated date (for efficiency purposes, the City needs to make one trip through the City).
Residents who have tree debris left over from the recent storm are advised to check with their waste hauler for their policies on branch disposal.
Waste haulers can provide details about their requirements for bundled branches.
Tree contractors can handle larger limbs and trees.
Yard clean-up is the responsibility of the property owner. The township does not have the equipment to handle tree removal and brush pick up.
The Montgomery County Solid Waste District accepts yard debris for a nominal fee at the South Transfer Facility, 1001 Encrete Lane, Dayton. The hours are 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday and 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday. The facility is closed Sunday. To contact the transfer facility, call 225-4999.

There will be no delay in city trash collection due to the July 4th holiday. However, Rumpke recycling pick-ups will be delayed by one day this week.
Bags of leaves and small bundles of sticks of storm debris can be placed with the regular weekly trash collection.
Branches that cannot be collected during the regular weekly trash pick-up will be collected within the next three weeks. "Residents are encouraged to cut the limbs in six to eight feet sections and move the limbs to the curb line or alley for collection," said Rich Norton, service director.
However, large fallen trees that require a tree service contractor should be disposed of by the contractor.
During the week of July 9-13, the service department will conduct Large-Item Trash Pick Up during residents' regular collection day.
The city will collect household items such as appliances, carpet, brush, metal, and lumber. Appliances should have the doors removed from the hinges. Carpet and brush should be cut in 3-4 ft. lengths and bundled.
