Historically, yard waste drop-off events ("Spring/Fall Clean-Up") were held each spring and fall at the Township's maintenance facility located at 7049 Big Walnut Road. During those times dumpsters were in place for self-service drop off of leaves, bushes, branches and other organic materials. However, the Township’s commercial composting partner is no longer accepting loads generated from public collection events due to the volume of trash that was disposed of in dumpsters labeled for organic yard waste. Therefore, there will be no yard waste collection dumpster events scheduled in the foreseeable future. As an alternative, residents can drop off yard waste at area composters directly or leave materials at the curbside and Rumpke will dispose of it with regular trash at the landfill.
