Garbage & Recycling

Garbage & Recycling


Beginning February 1, 2016 the Town of Orchard Park will be entering into a five (5) year contract with Waste Management.  Most of the current method of trash pickup will remain the same. The most significant change is to the recycling.

Recycling will be on an every other week schedule and each resident of the Town of Orchard Park will receive a 65-gallon recycling wheeled cart.

2020 Large Trash Schedule

Waste Management will continue to collect one bulky item per week, year round. Residents will no longer have to wait until the last full week of each month for bulky collection. They can merely place on item per week at the curb with their regular trash.

For those residents who have refrigerators, freezers, microwaves, air conditioner (both room size and whole units) stoves etc. to dispose of can drop them off at All Appliance Parts and Service 267 Lake Street, Hamburg NY 14075. Please call (716)649-4803 for more information and pricing.

Please be aware that as of 2012 any electronic devices cannot be picked up by Waste Management. Residents can call Sunnking at (585)-637-8365 or Hazman at (716)998-8073 for cost and drop off times.  Also check this website periodically as there are electronic drop off events in and around Buffalo during the year.

Leaving old electronics, including televisions and computers, on the curb for garbage pickup could result in a fine under a New York State Law. A first offense could to a $100.00 fine. Electronics cannot be left at curbside and cannot be placed in garbage bags or cans.

Waste Management uses Single Stream Recycling.

Single Stream recycling is the latest technology that provides many benefits to the storing, collecting and processing of recyclable material.

Residents will enjoy an expanded list of acceptable items for recycling and a simpler program because less material preparation is required such as sorting and sizing. Glass, plastic, metal, paper and cardboard can be co-mingled into one bin.
