City extends bagged leaf collection


FORT WAYNE, Ind. – Because of so much snow that fell in December, Fort Wayne Street Department crews weren’t able to complete the collection of bagged leaves.

So those leaves that have been bagged in bio-degradable bags will be picked up next week.

Residents with bagged leaves can call 311 through Friday, April 25 at 5:00 p.m. to schedule a pick-up. The bags will be collected within two business days.

This additional week is for leaves placed in bio-degradable bags only and bags will only be picked up if residents call 311. provides commenting on many stories to allow for constructive discussion.
