Christmas Tree and Electronic Waste Recycling Event
MAYOR BROWN ANNOUNCES CHRISTMAS TREE AND ELECTRONIC WASTE RECYCLING EVENT ON JANUARY 17th
December 19, 2014 – Mayor Byron Brown today announced that the City of Buffalo will hold a Christmas “tree-cycling” and electronics waste recycling event on January 17th at the City of Buffalo Engineering Garage located at 1120 Seneca Street, Buffalo, NY.
“After the Holidays we are pleased to offer city residents the additional opportunity to properly and safely recycle Christmas trees and unwanted computers and electronic items,” said Mayor Byron W. Brown. “By participating in this event, residents are helping to reduce the amount of unsafe disposals in our area, which can be harmful to their health as well as the environment.”
CHRISTMAS TREE RECYCLING
The City will also have curbside collection of naturally grown Christmas trees. The collection is scheduled to last from January 5 to January 9 on residents scheduled garbage day. This will be conducted by the City of Buffalo’s Department of Public Works, Parks & Streets as a way to help the environment and reduce costs associated with taking the trees to landfills. To participate in this collection, city residents are asked to place trees out on their curb before a scheduled garbage pickup and to not place them in garbage bags. Although they are scheduled on the same days, trees will be picked up separately from garbage, so city residents should not be concerned if they are left behind after garbage removal.
In addition to the one-week tree pick-up, the City is also offering drop-off opportunities at three locations in the city. These locations are as follows:
These drop-off sites will be open from 7:30 am – 3:00 pm, Monday through Saturday, beginning December 27th and ending January 17th.
It is also important to note that during the week of Christmas, Thursday’s garbage and recycling will be picked up on Friday and Friday’s garbage and recycling will be picked up on Saturday. In the same way during New Year’s week, Thursday’s garbage and recycling will be picked up on Friday and Friday’s garbage and recycling will be picked up on Saturday. All other scheduled garbage pick-ups will remain the same.
