Recycling Collection in the City of Buffalo Will Remain Weekly

September 27, 2013 Updated Mar 8, 2012 at 5:59 PM EDT

(WKBW release) Due to residents’ impressive response and participation in Buffalo’s new single stream curb-side recycling pilot program, the City of Buffalo’s Department of Public Works will continue to offer weekly curbside collection.

Over the past three months, 70,000 households in Buffalo received either a 65 or 95 gallon green cart for recycling.   Since then, recycling collection has doubled in Buffalo.  Last month, the city collected nearly 1,000 tons of material.

Reminder:  The recycling collection day of the week will remain the same as your trash pick-up. If you have any further questions, please call 311.
