Harrisburg, PA

Officials in Harrisburg say they are updating their composting plan for the city. The plan would allow the City to recycle leaves, branches, and brush in an environmentally friendly area that would also serve as an educational center for students.  The City has revised the plan after meetings with residents in the Township and in the City of Harrisburg. The result is a plan they say meets  the City’s needs for a recycling center while addressing concerns expressed by area residents.

The proposed area for the composting plan is a 5-acre permit site with a total lease area of 13.1 acres. 

The proposed composting site will only accept processing for leaf waste, garden waste, yard waste, tree trimmings, and shrubbery.  The City will include a 6-acre green belt buffer zone to allow space for wildlife and vegetation without impact.
