While summertime is in full swing, it's never too early to start thinking about autumn and the colder weather, because as you know winter is coming.
Even though I've thrown out all kinds of junk since last year, if you're anything like me, you still have a large collection of
junk bulk trash even after the spring cleaning you did earlier this year. If that is the case, then don't worry because you'll soon be able to toss most of that stuff out with your regular trash.
Twice every year the City of Buffalo has curbside bulk trash pick-up for city residents and city officials have recently released the dates that bulk trash can be thrown out for Fall 2023.
Bulk trash collection, which started at the end of July, will allow Buffalo residents to put out a pile of trash that put to 12 feet long, 3 feet wide, and 3 feet high containing your typical household trash. Items like appliances, couches, furniture, etc. are perfectly fine to toss out.
This is a great opportunity to do some more cleaning in preparation for the snow and long winter ahead.
While lots of different trash items are acceptable, there are quite a few things you should not toss out in your bulk trash. Items like TVs, computers, construction materials, tires, and paint are not allowed to be tossed out. Those items need to be disposed of in a special way.
In 2023, we will once again offer Spring and Fall Bulk Trash Collection. I ask City residents to follow the guidelines on the amount and type of items that can be put out for collection... I also ask residents to get their bulk trash to the curb on the Sunday of their designated collection week as pick-ups will take place Monday through Saturday, not just on their regular garbage day.
-Byron Brown, Mayor of Buffalo, New York
