November 1, 2019 – Street Department crews will begin this year’s leaf collection at 7:00 a.m. on Monday, November 4. Each of the City’s more than 400 neighborhoods will receive two pick-ups over the next seven weeks.
For curbside leaf collection, residents should rake leaves to the curb or park strip in front of their home, but not in the street. Leaves should be in the park strip by 7:00 a.m. on Monday of the week of their collection. Other yard waste should not be mixed with the leaves.
Residents can access daily collection updates at cityoffortwayne.org/leaves. The page is updated each weekday by 3:00 p.m. and will have the neighborhoods scheduled for the following day. The information is also available on the leaf hotline at 427-2603 for daily updates.
