FORT WAYNE – The city of Fort Wayne is closing three temporary dump sites that were opened to handle tree debris from the June 29 storm.
This Sunday is the last day residents may leave debris at the Swinney Park Pool, Conklin Pavilion at Shoaff Park and at the Tillman Dump, the city said in a written statement issued Friday.
It said that after Sunday, debris may still be dropped off at the city’s Biosolids Facility, 6210 Lake Ave., just west of Maplecrest Road.
It is open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday and noon to 6 p.m. Sundays.
Debris drop-off is free Friday, but its regular fees will resume Saturday: $17 per ton, with a $1 minimum.
The city is also picking up debris at homes, as long as it is taken to the tree-lawn area between the sidewalk and street. This is not being done on the regular garbage days, the city has said in earlier statements.
The city reminds residents to help with a citywide damage assessment by reporting storm damage to the State of Indiana’s Department of Homeland Security at www.in.gov/dhs/. https://myoracle.in.gov/hs/dev/flood/public/index.jsp;jsessionid=dflRQQnWK1fYVxy1dhrlplyQjVRpXG23bns60HG4TYC1hg11y2VQ!-1184309238
