Fort Wayne to pick up bagged leaves

Statement as issued Friday by the city:

Fort Wayne, Ind. -- Because of the heavy December snow events that prevented the completion of bagged leaves, the Street Department will be collecting leaves that have been bagged in bio-degradable bags 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.
