Christmas tree, electronic waste recycling slated for Jan.

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — The City of Buffalo is scheduling a Christmas tree and electronic waste recycling event to offer residents a safe way to dispose of potentially dangerous or cumbersome refuse.

The event — slated for Jan. 17 — Will be held at the City of Buffalo Engineering Garage at 1120 Seneca Street, Buffalo, N.Y.

Between 9 a.m. and 12 p.m., residents can dispose of electronics for free. Computers, printers, toner cartridges, computer accessories, televisions, tablets, scanners, audio equipment, video equipment and circuit boards are all encouraged.

Chipping services will also be free at this event, so those looking to dispose of Christmas trees can bring trees which are free of decorations to the Seneca Street location where they will be chipped on site.

Residents who can’t make that date also have the option of putting their trees out for collection between Jan. 5-9 on regularly scheduled garbage days. In order to dispose of a tree this way, residents are asked to place the trees on the curb before their respective garbage pickups without putting them in garbage bags. The trees will be picked up separately from garbage.

For those looking to dispose of their trees earlier than that, there are several locations taking trees early on. The following locations will be open from 7:30 a.m. through 3 p.m., Monday through Saturday from Dec. 27 through Jan. 17.

  • Cazenovia Park’s golf course parking lot south of Seneca Street.
  • Shoshone Park’s parking lot north of Hertel Avenue.
  • 1120 Seneca Street’s rear parking lot. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
