Fort Wayne, Ind. (www.incnow.tv) – The first of two rounds of leaf collection in Fort Wayne begins Monday, October 22.

Crews will roll into the following neighborhoods between October 22th and December 7, 2012.

The week of November 19-23 will be used as a catch-up week due to any weather delays.

Leaf collection can occur on any day of the designated collection week. It is important for residents to have leaves ready for pick-up by 7:00am on Monday of their designated week.

Leaf collection is provided at the street only. Leaves are to be raked to the curb or park strip in front of the residence or placed in biodegradable bags for collection. Other yard waste should not be mixed with the leaves, and cars should not be parked over the leaves.

And those thinking about burning their leaves, you may want to think again. Burning leaves within the city limits is a violation of City Code. The fine is $50, $75 after 30 days.
