Processing of Storm-Related Debris to Begin

yard debris

The vegetative debris generated from the tornado will be processed beginning January 27, 2020. This debris was generated as a result of the series of tornados that landed in Greene County on May 28, 2019.

In January 2020, Greene County, Greene County Engineer, Beavercreek City, and Beavercreek Township secured a vendor to process the vegetative debris.  The vendor, Beeghly Tree, has prior experience 

managing debris generated from disasters.  Beeghly Tree will process the materials by reducing it through grinding.  Once the material is ground, it will be delivered to registered and licensed 

compost facilities. The vegetative debris was staged at two sites, Cemex Reserve and Greene County Environmental Services.  It is expected the materials at Cemex will be ground before the end of February.

Processing at Environmental Services is scheduled to start in late February and continue into March.


Jason Tincu, Director of Greene County Sanitary Engineering, shared that the management of the vegetative debris was a cooperative effort of local government to provide a vital service during a difficult time.  The

 residents that were affected by the storm and volunteers are to be commended.  Their work to set clean brush at the curb will allow the material to become mulch.


Residents that need to manage organic materials generated from the tornado may drop-off any remaining materials at Greene County Environmental Services.  Residents may drop-off yard waste that is brush or 

firewood size.  Maximum size of the brush is 4 inches in diameter and 8 feet long.  Firewood maximum size is 14 inches in diameter and 18 inches long.  There is no charge.


Environmental Services is located at 2145 Greene Way Blvd. Xenia.  Operating hours when residents can drop-off yard waste are Monday – Thursday 10:30 am - 6:00 pm and Saturday 9:00 am – 4:00 pm.  Phone 

contact is 937-562-5925 or visit www.co.greene.oh.us/recycle.
