Greene County free tree and brush debris collection ends today

Published: Sunday, July 28, 2019 @ 4:50 AM

Today marks the final “Put-Out” day for tree and brush debris from the Memorial Day tornadoes. 

The “Put-Out” program has allowed residents whose trash is collected by the City of Beavercreek, Beavercreek Township, and the Greene County Engineer to put out organic debris from the tornadoes in the right of way, where it would be collected free of charge. 

After today, residents can still drop off organic material  at the Greene County Environmental Services Yard Waste Center at 2145 Greene Way Blvd. in Xenia for no charge. The Environmental Services center is open Monday-Thursday 1-8 p.m. and Saturday 9 a.m.-4 p.m.

Construction debris such as drywall or other material that was part of a structure are not included in the Put-Out program or accepted at the Environmental Services center. They can be taken to the Xenia Demolition Landfill at 610 Dayton-Xenia Road in Xenia, or to the Montgomery County Transfer Facility at 1001 Encrete Lane in Moraine.

Fees apply in both locations, although the City of Beavercreek encourages residents to check with their insurance company regarding construction debris removal, as many policies include some level of coverage.
