“I would like to thank The Recycling Partnership for partnering with us to launch the ‘Let’s do it together! “Program as we continue to increase recycling in the Buffalo community,” said Brown. “As part of this new program, we are excited to work directly with property managers, landlords and tenants who occupy apartment buildings, providing them with a host of awareness and education materials to drive measurable change. . We look forward to keeping even more valuable recyclables out of landfills while improving the quality of recyclables that support Buffalo’s continuously growing recycling industry. I thank The Recycling Partnership for helping us do even more to have a positive impact in our neighborhoods with this next phase of our 34 and More Buffalo Recycles program. “
As part of the program, the city will provide free collection at participating multi-unit residential buildings, as well as recycling education. Buildings will also receive apartment-sized reusable recycling collection bins, customizable assets, as well as on-site education and awareness for residents.
