MILLFAIR COMPOST CENTER TO OPEN MAR. 13 TO THE COMMUNITY
For Immediate Release Jointly Between Millcreek Township & Fairview Township: Mar. 9, 2023
ERIE COUNTY, P.A – The Millfair Compost Center will be opening Monday, Mar. 13, 2023. The jointly operated center between Millcreek Township and Fairview Township is offering a 20% discount on mulch products and delivery fees to start the season.
“We’ve received a lot of inquiries about when the facility will open for 2023 and we’re thrilled to have that public interest,” said Millcreek Community Relations and Sustainability Director, Jessica Stutzman. “Easy access to recycling and composting through Millfair is a service we’re excited to offer residents, every year.”
In 2022, Millfair received over 20,800 visitors, collected 5,858 tons of brush and leaves and completed 467 deliveries. Importantly, Millfair processed and distributed 7,151 cubic yards of material back into the community.
Millfair Composting and Recycling Center accepts brush, tree trimmings, leaves and non-food garden residue from Millcreek, Fairview and West County residents, at no charge. Millfair then takes these items and turns them into mulch and compost for gardens and landscaped areas.
Deliveries are limited to Millcreek, Fairview and West County residents. However, all residents and businesses of Erie County are permitted to purchase Millfair products. Landscapers and businesses are permitted to access the site by obtaining a $20 permit and paying per drop-off.
“We appreciate the community support we get and are looking forward to a great season” said Millfair Site Supervisor, Jon Jares.
Millfair Compost Center is located at 2301 Millfair Road. It is open seven days a week. Hours are as follows:
Monday – Saturday | 9 AM – 5 PM
