Mayor Brown Announces The Start Of Buffalo Leaf Recycling Program - UNTIL DECEMBER 1, 2014 - The City of Buffalo Public Works Department to Collect Leaves and Autumn Yard Debris for Mulching
October 16, 2014 - Mayor Byron Brown today announced that the City of Buffalo will collect bagged leaves and yard waste from now until December 1st. City residents can put their bagged leaves at the curb during this time period for composting. Click here to view flyer
“The City of Buffalo appreciates the cooperation of its citizens in helping this year's bagged leaf collection process run as smoothly as possible,” said Mayor Brown, noting that participation in the city’s leaf recycling program further protects our environment and addresses his green vision goal of 34% recycling by 2016. “I encourage our residents to learn about the different leaf recycling collection alternatives available to them citywide so that our community can continue to properly recycle, saving taxpayer dollars by keeping leaves out of landfills.”
To participate in this collection, city residents are asked to place their leaves in clear plastic bags or brown recyclable bags. These bags are available at local hardware stores, home centers, and other retailers. There is no limit to the number of paper leaf bags residents may place at the curb for pickup. Yard waste in the form of sticks and branches should be tied in bundles with ‘twine’ or ‘rope’ and be no longer than 4 feet in length. Do not rake leaves into the street; leaves should not be placed in garbage totes. Also, residents should be advised that raking leaves into city streets is illegal and punishable by fine.
Residents are also being asked to place their yard waste on the curb. Yard waste and bagged leaves may be picked up on a different day than the garbage day. City residents should not be concerned if they are left behind after garbage removal.
As an alternative to the curbside bagged leaves and yard waste collection, the city opened five drop-off locations where residents can bring their unwanted leaves and yard waste.
The five sites are:
Drop off hours at the four park locations are from 8:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m., Monday through Saturday until December First. * Drop off hours at 1120 Seneca Street are from 8:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. Monday- Friday, and the first Saturday of the month from 8:00AM – 2:00PM, year round*.

We worked closely with residents and business owners to move this project forward. I am proud to stand with them today to celebrate the completion of this streetscape project, reinvigorating this community and attracting new residents and business owners who want to live, work and invest in our city.”
“Fillmore Avenue serves as the gateway to MLK Park and has the potential to become one of the most important commercial corridors in Buffalo,” said Majority Leader Demone Smith. “This neighborhood is already a desirable neighborhood and these improvements to the business strip further enhance its appeal. I thank Mayor Brown, the city and citizens for working together on this coordinated and strategic project that is transforming this historic neighborhood into a vibrant and diverse community, spurring additional development opportunities and job growth.”
“The Fillmore Avenue improvement project lays a new foundation in the MLK Park neighborhood providing both community enhancements and economic opportunities,” said Congressman Brian Higgins. “This project represents a significant federal investment in the City of Buffalo and again demonstrates the value of infrastructure investments as a means to improve our transportation network, business districts and neighborhoods. I commend Congresswoman Louise Slaughter for initiating funding for the project and was proud to support this allocation in Congress.”
The streetscape improvements to Fillmore Avenue, between N. Parade Avenue and East Ferry Street, included road repaving, new sidewalks, bike lanes, decorative lighting, new trees and benches. Along with improved pedestrian and vehicular safety with the installation of a new street lighting system and enhanced cross walks.
