Visit the City’s Recycling Facility, among other Earth Month adventures

Ever wanted to get an insider’s look into the world of major recycling? Well, now you can, as part of an ongoing month-long dedication t0 planet earth (the only planet we have at the moment). Modern Corporation invites you to check out its Materials Recycling Facilities (city’s recycling facility). Come take a firsthand look at the operation, and discover what the future of recycling looks like in Buffalo. The Open House is located at 266 Hopkins Street (near the intersection of Hopkins and Tift streets, at the rear of David’s Star Automotive). 

It’s not everyday that you can walk into a recycling facility, so jump onboard the opportunity on Saturday, April 15 2017, from 9am to noon. This is a fun and informative family-friendly adventure that will demonstrate to the kids exactly what happens to the cans, papers and pizza boxes that get tossed into the big green recycling bin.

City residents have helped to increase the recycling diversion rate to 27.78%  

Join The City’s 34andMore recycling team, who will be at the state of the art facility to discuss ways that we can all help to get even greener in the recycling department, in an effort to push the city’s recycling rate to 34% or higher.

Visit for more opportunities to participate.
