Buffalo to accept e-waste on first Saturdays

The city of Buffalo will accept electronic waste for recycling at its engineering garage, 1120 Seneca St. between 8 a.m. and 2 p.m. Saturday, and on future first Saturdays of the month.

On weekdays, electronics recycling is available year-round at the engineering garage from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The city accepts computer systems, printers, cell phones, fax machines, wires, televisions, video games, VCRs and DVD players, small appliances, microwave ovens and florescent bulbs.

The city will not accept concrete, devices with liquid mercury, dry and wet cell batteries, hazardous waste, pesticides, yard equipment, gas-powered equipment, radioactive materials and roofing materials.

Senior citizens or disabled residents who have limited transportation can call 311 to make special arrangements for electronic recycling.

Electronic waste can contain hazardous substances including lead, mercury and PCBs and state regulations prohibit the city from collecting it at the curb. Leaving e-waste at the curb could result in a $75 fine.
