Let’s Recycle Buffalo

Help rid our city of the products that have reached the end of their useful lives by contributing to this spring’s annual recycling drive.  Erie County and the City of Buffalo have teamed up, yet again, with the GM Powertrain facility to provide the citizens of Buffalo with a location to drop-off old electric items and used bicycles that are no longer useful for anything other than cluttering the home and/or workplace.

 

Used Bicycles will be collected and recycled by Green Options Buffalo’s programs Buffalo Blue Bicycle, an innovative community bicycle-lending program, and Recycle-A-Bicycle, an after school initiative for public school students, teaching bicycle repair, maintenance, safety and the ecological impacts of transportation.

 

Green Options Buffalo (GO-Buffalo) is Buffalo‘s premier bicycle advocacy nonprofit – running community programs and working for bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure and policy improvements in the Greater Buffalo region. Because of GO-Buffalo’s efforts, hundreds of used bicycles are removed from the waste stream each year and returned to the streets. By working to make Greater Buffalo more bicycle-friendly, GO-Buffalo is curtailing carbon emissions and building a healthier community. 

 

Other electronics welcome for recycling include computers, monitors, keyboards, mice, printers, scanners, cell phones, rechargeable batteries, florescent bulbs, VCRs, DVD players and TVs. Goodwill and Buffalo Re-Use will also be collecting textiles and tools, respectively.

 

So please bring any used electronics, bicycles, bicycle parts or accessories to the GM Powertrain facility, located on Vulcan Street between Niagara Street/River Road and Kenmore Avenue this Saturday, June 6th, from 9AM to 1PM.
