Leaf Composting

Erie residents are invited to recycle leaves for composting each November. Leaves are collected and used by local farms as soil amendment and need to be as clean as possible. No garden waste, large brush, branches or tree stumps are accepted (no commercial landscaping). The event is free to Erie residents!

Visit this page in late October to learn of the event days. Then, 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.

For more information, email the Town at contactus@erieco.gov.
