Neighborhood Leaf Pick-Up Program 2018

As autumn leaves will soon begin to fall you may be sure the City of Fort Wayne is planning for the annual curbside leaf pick-up for City residents.

  • The City Street Department will again conduct two cycles of leaf collection in each neighborhood.
  • Leaf collection will begin on Monday, October 29, 2018 in the Central area.
  • Crews will then move to the South area on Monday, November 5, 2018 for a week and then to the North area of the City on Monday, November 12, 2018.
  • A second round of leaf pick-up will follow - with all collection scheduled to be finished on December 14, 2018.
  • The week of November 26th will be a catch-up week if needed.

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.

For collection of leaves that have been bagged in biodegradable bags, please call 311. Bags will be picked up within two business days after you call.  

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
