FORT WAYNE – The City of Fort Wayne announced that it will begin picking up debris at the curb, not in alleys, later this week.
It said a schedule for curbside debris collection will be announced Tuesday and that brush piles will not be picked up with the normal garbage collection.
For those who want to drop off debris, the city's Biosolids Facility has extended its hours to 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, and 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Wednesday, July 4.
Beginning today, there will be no fees at the Biosolids Facility at 6210 Lake Ave., just west of Maplecrest Road.
Trees and branches can be taken to three additional locations. They are:
- Parking lot at Swinney Park Pool.
- Tillman Dump, which is west of the park entrance on Tillman Road.
- Parking lot at Shoaff Park, near Cocklin Pavilion.
