Until further notice garbage and recycling crews will only collect City of Fort Wayne Issued carts used for residential collection. This is due to the COVID- 19 pandemic. Crews will not pick-up additional personal containers, bags or boxes. During this time, bulk items are limited to one item per week per household.  The bulk item should be placed at the curb on the day of your normal garbage collection. It will be picked-up within a few days of your normal collection. For more information on bulk items visit  Matresses and box springs must be bagged/wrapped for bulk collection.
