October 10, 2023 - Due to leaves falling early, the City of Fort Wayne will begin collecting biodegradable bags filled with leaves Monday, October 16. Residents may begin scheduling bag pick-ups on Friday, October 13.

Residents with bagged leaves are asked to call 311 to schedule a pick-up. The bags need to be placed at the curb prior to calling 311. Biodegradable bags filled with only leaves, placed by the curb, will be collected after a pick-up has been scheduled through 311.

Bagged leaf collection will run through the end of 2023, weather permitting. 

The schedule to pick-up leaves in the park strip that aren’t bagged will remain as follows:
