FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO) – Fort Wayne Street Department crews will head north for leaf collection on Tuesday.

There is no leaf collection in observance of Veterans Day Monday, so crews will be in northern neighborhoods beginning Tuesday, Nov. 13.

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 a.m. on Monday of the week of their collection.

Residents wanting biodegradable paper leaf bags collected should call 311 to schedule a pick-up. The bags should be placed at the curb, and bags will be collected within two business days of the call. Leaf bags will not be collected with garbage collection.

Daily leaf collection updates can be found at cityoffortwayne.org/leaves.
