May 10, 2022 - GFL Environmental USA has received the necessary approvals to become the City of Fort Wayne’s garbage and recycling hauler effective July 1.
Tonight, City Council unanimously approved a contract between the City of Fort Wayne and GFL. Earlier today, the City of Fort Wayne’s Board of Public Works approved the same contract.
