The City of Buffalo announced that its weekly recycling collections will remain due to the “impressive response” to participate by city residents.
The city recently started a new single stream curb-side recycling pilot program by the Department of Public Works.
The city reports that in the past three months, 70,000 households in Buffalo received either a 65 or 95 gallon green cart for recycling. Recycling collection has doubled in the Queen city since the arrival of the new green totes.
Nearly 1,000 tons of material was collected last month.
