City leaf pickup to start Monday

Leaf pickup begins Monday. The Fort Wayne Street Department will collect leaves in two separate sweeps through each neighborhood:

•Monday-Friday – South

•Oct. 28-Nov. 1 – North

•Nov. 4-8 – Central

•Nov. 12-15 – South

•Nov. 18-22 – North

•Dec. 2-6 – Central

The week of Nov. 25 will be used as a catch-up week. Leaf collection can occur on any day of the designated collection week, so residents should have leaves ready for pickup by 7 a.m. Monday of their designated week. To schedule a pickup of leaves placed in biodegradable bags, call 311.
