To help make leaf pick-up most effective for your neighborhood, please keep the following in mind:  

  • Have leaves ready for collection on the first day of the week when crews are scheduled to be in your area.  Crews will only be in your neighborhood one time that week.
  • Rake leaves onto the park strip area between the sidewalk and the curb.  Please do not rake leaves into the street.  This will help avoid having leaves clog storm drain inlets and will help prevent street flooding in the event of heavy rains.
  • REMEMBER:  burning leaves within City limits is a violation of City Code §74.70.  The fine is $50 and increases to $75 if not paid within 30 days.

 Please have your leaves ready for pick-up on the first day of your scheduled week.  Again, crews will only be in your neighborhood one time that week. 

The planned schedule may change due to weather conditions or if the volume of leaves requires more time in a particular area.  To find out where crews will be picking up leaves each day, you may call the Leaf Hotline at 427-2302 during the 7-weeks of leaf pick-up or check our website:  www.cityoffortwayne.org/leaves.
