Garbage Pickup:

The Streets Department would like to remind residents/businesses that during the months of March through October garbage may be placed at the curb for pickup no earlier than 6:00 p.m. the day before collection. The garbage crew starts at 7:00 a.m. so please make sure garbage is curbside by then. 
Please note: Borough Ordinance No. 859 prohibits using garbage cans/containers larger than 35 gallons. 

Leaf, Brush & Grass Collection:
The Streets Department staff asks that you not put your leaves, grass and brush in the same pile; place leaves and grass in one pile and brush in another.  Brush and/or sticks plug the equipment therefore piles have to be separated by Streets Department staff which causes delays. 

Yard Debris in the Street:
It is not permitted to place leaves, grass, brush or any other material in the streets of North East. Please place your yard debris on the berm.
Snow Removal:
Borough Ordinance No. 856 prohibits the deposit of snow and ice removed from private property upon the sidewalks and streets of the Borough located within the public right-of-way.  Also the owner(s) or occupant(s) of premises abutting sidewalks are to remove accumulations of snow and ice from the sidewalks.   
Questions should be directed to the North East Borough Streets Department (814-725-1315) Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. - they will be happy to assist you.

E-Cycling Collection Program

North East Borough is happy to announce that we have started a Covered Device E-Cycling Collection Program.  As of January 24, 2013, it became illegal for landfills and other solid waste disposal facilities in Pennsylvania to accept covered electronic devices or their components.  Act 108 of 2010 requires that these devices be RECYCLED.  We have a Covered Device E-Cycling Collection Program to help North East Borough residents dispose of  unwanted items.

E-Cycling will be collected the same day your normal recycling is collected.  We ask that you separate the E-Cycling material from your normal recycling and place them in two separate piles.  The same truck will collect both your normal recycling and your E-Cycling.

Dog licenses can be ordered through the County of Erie's online dog license sales site (see link below).  State law requires all dogs three months and older to be licensed by January 1st of each year.
Lifetime licenses are available for dogs that have a microchip as a permanent identification.
Remember - the cost of a license is less than the penalty for being caught without one.  Owners who fail to license their dogs could face a fine of up to $300 for each unlicensed dog.
