Electronic waste no longer accepted curbside in Buffalo


BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – The City of Buffalo is no longer accepting electronic waste at the curb.

Per New York State regulations, residents will now be required to drop off their e-waste at the City of Buffalo Engineering Garage, located at 1120 Seneca Street, to be recycled. The site is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. until 3 p.m. and the first Saturday of the month from 8 a.m. until 2 p.m.

The first offense will lead to a notice reminding residents of the new rules. Subsequent offenses could lead to a $75 fine.

It is illegal for residents to dispose of e-waste and illegal for landfills to accept the waste. But if you can’t make it to Seneca Street, check the local store where you purchased your product. The store may provide free e-waste recycling.

Senior citizens or disabled residents can contact Division of Citizen Services at 716-851-4890 for special arrangements.
