Buffalo, New York – Mayor Byron W. Brown today announced the City’s Department of Public Works, Parks & Streets will kick-off the Spring 2023 Bulk Trash schedule the week of April 2, in the Ellicott District.
“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,” Mayor Brown said. “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.”
Residents are also asked to follow the posted parking regulations in their neighborhood to make sure trash collection equipment has access to the curbside piles.
The 2023 Spring Bulk Trash Schedule is:
Ellicott District – Week of April 2
Fillmore District – Week of April 16
Niagara District – Week of April 23
Masten District – Week of April 30
Lovejoy District – Week of May 7
South District – Week of May 21
Delaware District – Week of June 4
North District – Week of June 11
University District – Week of June 25
Curbside bulk trash piles cannot not exceed 12 ft. long, 3 ft. wide and 3 ft. high.
Electronic trash, such as televisions and computers, as well as construction debris and tires, are banned from bulk trash.
The City will also hold four Tire Drop-Off Days in 2023. Those dates will be Saturday, April 8, Saturday, May 13, Saturday July 8, and Saturday, September 9.
Tires can be dropped off on those dates at the Broadway Garage, located at 197 Broadway, from 7 a.m. – 3 p.m. There’s a limit of 4 tires per household on each drop-off day, and all tires must be off the rim.
