Statement issued Friday by the city of Fort Wayne:
City street department crews will work Saturday to make progress on leaf collection. Crews are still playing catch-up in the central part of the City and will work Saturday.
Next week crews are expected to complete the central portion of the city and are expected to begin the second pass of south Fort Wayne neighborhoods beginning Tuesday.
Remember, leaves should be raked to the park strip area or placed in brown biodegradable yard waste bags and set at the curb for collection. Please refrain from placing leaves in ditch lines or between parked cars. This will slow down the pick up process for the crews.
For daily updates of crew locations please check cityoffortwayne.org/leaves2009.
The site has the latest information about where crews will be on a particular day.
To schedule a pick-up with biodegradable bags, residents can call 3-1-1.
