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. 


I have been involved with publishing and marketing for the past 37 years. My passion is helping people share their voice. I am able to do this through two important venues: One, with Area-Info.net where people can share everything from opinions to events to news. It is your choice! What do you want to share? Two, through a new program called America's Real Deal I am involved with to help business owners get their voice heard. For people who love to save money and earn while saving, there is a new program called the r network. You are provided with a card that entitles the user to automatic savings on more than 300,000 products. Learn more about the revv card today. This is by invitation only to be some of the first people to get this card. I schedule speaking engagements with community groups and business groups to share my passion about the importance of "sharing your voice".
