The Citywide Spring Cleanup for the City of Buffalo begins this Wednesday, May 18th and runs through Saturday, May 21st. The cleanup is an opportunity for citizens of Buffalo to take advantage of the City's generosity while they pay for people to take their trash, waste and junk to the County landfill for disposal.
Tom Hulick, Buffalo City Building Inspector, is in charge of the program, and he explains why the City is willing to pay for the cleanup.
Vouchers must be picked up at City Hall before going to the landfill. Proof of residency and a license plate number of the vehicle that will be used to haul to the landfill are required, and that entitles the resident to as many trips as they need to clean their property, Hulick said.
Most household waste, garbage, lumber, auto parts, refrigerators, freezers and similar items will be accepted free of charge. Other items like tires, paint, and camping trailers will be assessed an additional fee. No lead-acid batteries will be accepted, and loads must be separated and covered with tarp.
For a complete list of what is and is not free, and for other information, check with City Hall.
