Local Man Still Doesn’t Understand Erie Spring Cleanup Rules


Upon hearing that Erie’s single-item Spring Cleanup program will begin soon, eastside resident Jody Porter immediately dragged nearly a dozen pieces of broken down furniture and electronic appliances to the curb in front of his house, where it will sit for the next month at least.

Neighbors tried to remind him that the rules allow only one large item per week, but Porter isn’t worried. “I’ve been bringing out ten to fifteen items each year, and they all eventually disappear. Except this sofa…it’s been here a few years.”  Porter added, “I’d like to talk more, but I have to get in my pickup truck and see what my neighbors are throwing out. I got some good stuff last year – including most of what I put out this year.”

City officials plan to issue a littering citation to Porter if they can find his front door.

    …except for scouring the neighbors’ front lawns and alleys—THAT they should fine him for.
