Dayton trash and recycling schedule changes begin this week

In some cases, it marks the first changes in over a decade

Starting this week, about 15,000 households in the city of Dayton will see changes to their trash and recycling schedules.

The city collects trash Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays or Thursdays, based on the locations of the homes (the zones they are in). Recycling is collected on the same days as trash, every other week.

Some households in the city will see their trash bins emptied on different days of the week. Some households will see recycling collections change. Some will see changes to both services.

Residents can find the new trash, recycling and bulk pickup schedules online at Households with questions also can contact the Dayton call center at 937-333-4800.

This is the first time that the city has changed its recycling schedule since 2010.
