Street Department

The Street Department plays an important role in the ease and safety of life in Bryan. In addition to snow and leaf removal on city streets and parking lots, the Street Department is responsible for garbage and recycling collection, leaf collection, storm and sewer maintenance, and maintaining Fountain Grove Cemetery

Location, Hours & Contact Details

The Street Department is located at 330 Townline Road and is open 7 a.m.-3 p.m., Monday-Friday. For questions or more information, call 419-636-8547 or email

Garbage & Recycling

Recycling: In addition to curbside pick-up, residents can drop off specific items at our curbside hoppers 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Find detailed information on which items can be recycled and what you can drop off at the Recycling Center.

Garbage Collection: Garbage collection is provided for all city residents. Garbage should be placed near the curb in a City of Bryan garbage bag by 7 a.m. on your designated pick-up day. Bags are provided for free once a year, but more may be purchased for a small fee at the City Clerk’s office.

  • Weekly routes are determined by location. See our map to determine your day.
  • If your regular pick-up day falls on Thanksgiving or Christmas, garbage will be picked up the next weekday. No other holidays impact weekly trash pick-up.

Big Trash Day: Once a month, the City of Bryan offers a big trash day. All items should be placed next to the curb by 7:00 a.m. and separated into piles (e.g. wood, trash and metal).  Loose items should be placed in a non-reusable container. Everything placed on the curb will be picked up. Please note: commercial or contractor generated trash is not eligible for big trash day pick-up


Fall Leaf Collection

On curbed streets, leaves need to be in the gutter. On non-curbed streets, leaves should be raked to the edge of the street. Leaf pick-up days follow the same schedule as garbage collection days.

Have leaves in the spring? Drop them off 24/7 in the designated hopper at the Recycling Center.


Snow Removal

Our Street Department can move some snow! We are proud to be one of the best-equipped cities around. Our fleet includes seven large dump trucks with plows, two salt trucks with plows, two front end loaders with plows, and a one-ton dump truck with a plow.

On a day with 3-6” of snow, every street and city-owned parking lot can be plowed in four hours. Add another hour, and alleys will be open too. Remember, parked cars slow down plowing.

Report a Pothole

Ups and downs in winter temperatures are a natural part of living in northwest Ohio. So too are the potholes created by those freeze-thaw cycles.

The City of Bryan takes great pride in keeping our streets safe and is committed to addressing issues in a timely fashion. You can help us fulfill that mission by reporting potholes when you see them. Simply fill out the form below to notify the Street Department.
