Neighborhood Leaf Pick-Up Program 2018

Curbside neighborhood leaf collection is complete for 2018.

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

  • Have leaves raked to the park strip or curb and ready for pick-up onthe first day of your scheduled weeks.
  • 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 heaving rains.
  • REMEMBER: burning leaves within City limits is a violation of City Code ยง74.70. The fine is $50 and increases to $75 if not paid within 30 days.

Weather conditions or the volume of leaves in a particular area may cause the planned schedule to change.  For any necessary updates will be posted at www.cityoffortwayne.org/leaves.  You may also contact the Leaf Hotline 427-2302 or the Citizens Services Center at 311 with questions.  For a larger version of this map please click pdf2018 Leaf Collection Map
