Trash, Leaf and Limb Pick-up
Trash Pick-up - For any questions on what is acceptable and unacceptable waste or any other questions concerning refuse, garbage, trash, or recycling please contact Waste Management at 716-496-5000.
Leaf Pick-up -During the fall, the Village provides weekly leaf collection service. The collections begin on the first Monday of October and continue through the first Friday in December. There will be no leaf collection provided on Columbus Day, Veteran's Day, Thanksgiving Day or the Friday after Thanksgiving, all of which are Village holidays.
Please call the Department of Public Works at (716)683-1028 to determine the collection day for your street. Leaf collection will be performed on your street the same day of the week throughout the collection season.
To have leaves picked up by the vacuum leaf loader, there are a few simple rules Village residents should follow:
Rake your leaves into the grass plot between your sidewalk and the street or, if you have no median, rake them into the gutter. You should do this the day before the collection. Leaves may also be bagged or put in garbage cans for pickup by the garbage collection company.
The leaf crew cannot return until the following week if your leaves are not out on time.
Village crews cannot collect leaves from private property or from alleys.
Remove all cans, bottles, sticks, toys and debris from your piles of leaves. These items can cause very expensive damage to the Village's equipment. Please remove parked cars from the path of the leaf vacuum. It is very difficult to collect piles of leaves from between parked cars.
Your Cooperation and Assistance Will be Appreciated.
Brush and Limb Pick-up - The Department of Public Works picks up and chips all brush that will fit into the machine on a monthly basis, generally the first Tuesday of each month. Residents should call (716)683-1028 at least 24 hours prior to that time to allow scheduling. This schedule permits the department to perform other scheduled tasks without interruption.
