Fort Wayne residents can expect to find a postcard from the city this week notifying them of whether they’ll have a new day for trash and recycling pickup as part of an effort to improve service.
The “It’s a New Day” postcards show the pickup day for trash and the pickup week for recycling.
Even though only 47 percent of residents will have their collection day change, everyone will receive a card.
The new schedule Monday, November 5. Until then, the current collection schedule will be in place.
The change in collection days was prompted by ongoing complaints about missed pickups by Red River Waste Solutions.
The change is meant to streamline the collection process by making collection routes more efficient.
Residents can also check when their trash and recyclables are scheduled for pickup on the MyNewTrashDay.com website.
