Daily Update

The City of Fort Wayne Street Department crews have completed the 2020 leaf program.   The crews will continue to pick up biodegradable bags until December 31, 2020. 

The City will designate two (2) weeks in the Spring of 2021, for a Spring cleanup for citizens that want to use our biodegradable bag program.  The City will announce those dates in mid to late March weather permitting. 

  • 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 on the 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.
    • This list of pick-up locations will be updated daily by 3:00 p.m. You may also contact the Leaf Hotline 427-2603 or the Citizens Services Center at 311 with questions.  To print or download this map Click Here
