Neighborhood Leaf Pick-Up Program 2017

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 October 30, 2017 in the North area.
  • Crews will then move to the Central area of the City for the week of November 6th and then to the South area the week of November 13th.
  • A second round of leaf pick-up will follow - with all collection scheduled to be finished on December 15, 2017.
  • The week of November 27th 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 upwithin two business days after you call.
