- The City of Beavercreek, Beavercreek Township and Greene County Engineer set a last “Put-Out” date of July 28, 2019 for tree and brush debris from the Memorial Day tornado event. The last put-out date of July 28th was nearly two months after the damaging tornado. All entities have compelted their pick-ups. Please see below for where to drop additional yard debris. Construction debris is not being collected and organic debris must continue to be separated from construction debris to avoid the organic material from not being collected.
For those currently desiring to drop-off their own organic material and for everyone after July 28, 2019, residents can drop off their tree and brush debris at the Greene County Environmental Services Yard Waste Center located at 2145 Greene Way Blvd. in Xenia for NO CHARGE.
