Leaf Composting

Erie residents are invited to recycle leaves for composting. First, have fun with your leaves, jump on them in piles, or re-use them in bags for Halloween props to help us crush them! Next, please bring the leaves in loosely tied plastic or paper bags that you will keep after emptying your leaves. 

The event is only for tree and bush leaves; no garden waste, large brush, branches or tree stumps will be accepted (your leaves will be used to amend local farm soils and need to be as clean as possible). 

Please bring proof of residency ready. Sorry, no commercial landscaping accepted.

Let's keep leaves out of the landfill and storm drains! 

Saturday, November 7 & Sunday, November 15
Erie Recycling Center - 1000 Briggs Street
9:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.
