Fort Wayne, Ind. (Indiana's NewsCenter) -- Fort Wayne continues to direct resources in order to remove storm debris, restore traffic and keep residents safe after Friday's storm.

Mayor Tom Henry has been in constant contact with officials at Indiana Michigan Power. He has expressed the concerns of residents and encouraged them to expend all available resources to restore power.

Fort Wayne crews continue to remove trees and fix traffic signals.

In order to help with cleaning up the debris, the City posted a map of the curbside debris pick-up schedule on the front page of its website. The map is shaded, showing residents the status of debris collection in their area. The map is to let residents know when their areas are being picked-up.

The debris needs to be left at the street curb for collection, and residents should not place the debris in the ally. Branches will not be picked-up with normal garbage collection.

The City of Fort Wayne is advising residents to call 311 to report any storm damages.

If there is a fire then they are advised to call 911.

If you have debris in your yard, you can drop it off at several locations around town.

The Bio-Solids facility on Lake Avenue will be open every day this week until 9 p.m. except the Fourth of July when it will close at 6 p.m.

Other drop off sites for trees, limbs and branches are the parking lots at Swinney Park Pool, Tillman Park at the Tillman Road entrance, Shoaff Park near the Conklin Pavilion and McMillen Ice Arena.

The city will start picking up debris at the curb later this week.

A schedule for curbside debris pickup will be announced Tuesday and will be available on the city's website, and we will post a link to it as soon as we get the information.
