Mayor Brown, City of Buffalo, UB sponsor Shredding & Recycling Event - Nove

November 2 – Mayor Byron W. Brown announced today that the City of Buffalo, the University at Buffalo along with other community groups will sponsor a Community Shredding and Recycling Event on Saturday, November 19th from 9:00AM – 12:00PM at the University at Buffalo South Campus Main Bailey Parking Lot.   
“I encourage city residents to bring their household and personal papers to this community shredding event that is designed to help fight identity theft,” said Mayor Byron Brown.  “I am pleased that the city and the University of Buffalo are teaming up to provide this important public service to residents at no cost.”
The Community Shredding Event is designed for residents to safely and securely shred and recycle their confidential personal papers.  Papers suitable for shredding include any confidential documents containing account numbers or social security numbers, bank or medical statements, tax documents, or other paper items of a personal nature. There will be a five (5) box limit per vehicle, and all materials will be shredded on-site.
GObike of Buffalo will also be on site to accept bicycles in any condition.  The Recycle-a-Bike program works with at risk students to teach them about bicycle repair and maintenance, as well as safety, health and the environment, while building their own bike from refurbished parts.  
Also participating in the event is Mayor Brown’s Western New York Coalition for Donated Goods (WNYCDG).  WNYCDG, a consortium on nonprofit organizations, will accept clothing, including worn and torn items, shoes and other textiles like sheets and blankets.  All material collected will be used to support local community services. 
”The University at Buffalo is honored to partner with the City of Buffalo, the WNY Coalition for Donated Goods and GoBike Buffalo to minimize our environmental footprint on the future,” said Ryan A. McPherson, Chief Sustainability Officer for the University at Buffalo. “Mayor Brown’s focus on increasing the City’s recycling efforts is to be commended as we continue to invest in creating a more resilient and sustainable city.”
