The annual Buffalo Citywide Spring Cleanup date has been set for this year, and again it will coincide with the county's hazardous material pickup.
The Dates are May 11th through the 14th, with the county's hazmat pick up that weekend as well.
The Citywide Spring Cleanup gives everyone living inside the city limits the opportunity to clean up their yards and property of non-hazardous debris, garbage and other material, with the city picking up the cost, according to City Building Inspector Tom Hulick, who is in charge of the program.
Hulick and the city council discussed the program at last week's council meeting.
All that is needed is for residents to stop by City Hall to sign up and receive a voucher which allows them to make trips to the landfill.
The city has budgeted $10,000 for the cleanup, up slightly from last year's total of $9,000 that the city spent, said Hulick.
Last year's total was slightly higher than in past years because the city took appliances and recaptured refrigerants during the cleanup.
