To help make leaf pick-up most effective for your neighborhood, please keep the following in mind:

*Have leaves raked to the park strip or curb and ready for pick-up on the first day of your scheduled weeks.

*Please do not rake leaves into the street. This will help avoid having leaves clog storm drain inlets and will help prevent street flooding in the event of heaving rains.

*REMEMBER burning leaves within City limits is a violation of City Code §74.70. The fine is $50 and increases to $75 if not paid within 30 days.

*For collection of leaves that have been bagged in biodegradable bags, please call 311. Bags will be picked up within two business days after you call.

*The shortened week of Thanksgiving, November 21-25, will be a catch-up week, if needed.

Weather conditions or the volume of leaves in a particular area may cause the planned schedule to change. You may also contact the Leaf Hotline at 427-2302 or the Citizens Services Center at 311 with questions. To see daily collection locations please visit www.cityoffortwayne.org/leaves.
