FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) - Fort Wayne residents hope the city's plan to clean up the city will make leftover trash a thing of the past.
The city said Red River Waste Solutions is missing 1 to 2 percent of households each week.
"As long as they don't get lost like Red River it sounds like something. Like why not? That could help things out," David Jones said.
Starting Monday several street department employees will work on their off hours to collect garbage and recyclables that were missed by Red River and reported to 311.
Residents don't have to worry about the added costs. Employee pay and the equipment will be funded by the fines Red River pays for missing pickups.
New routes went into effect last Fall ,and then new trash days were implemented this year. This is the latest change.
If your trash has not been picked up you are encouraged to call 311 and report it.
