City's website, hotline updated to reflect new schedule
The City of Fort Wayne Street Department's third and final leaf pick-up is underway.
The crews will start in the central section of the city, as outlined on the leaf pick-up map, and work north. The south section and part of the central section is already finished.
Weather and equipment permitting, crews should be finished in three weeks.
Areas scheduled for the first pick-up include Westfield, Taylor Street, Wildwood Park, Ardmore Avenue, Engle Road, Broadway, Getz Road, Maumee Terrace, East Central, Spring Street, Clinton Street, the Oxford neighborhood, Pontiac Place, Greater McMillen Park, Rudisill Plaza, New Haven Avenue, McKinnie Avenue, Oxford Street, and Anthony Boulevard.
Residents should rake leaves to the parkstrip area or place them in brown biodegradable yard waste bags and set at the curb for collection. City officials remind residents not to rake leaves in ditch lines or between parked cars. This will slow down the pick-up process for the crews.
The Street Department will only pick up leaves placed in biodegradable bags or leaves raked to the parkstrip. Leaves placed in plastic bags will not be picked up. Residents may call the 311 call center for bag pick-up within two business days.
