Buffalo Reuse

I love the idea behind buffalo reuse but I feel like every time I go there it gets junkier, like full on junk. Like a dirty ashtray and some VHS tapes junky.

Buffalo Reuse Trip

So on the trip down to Buffalo Reuse to drop off the electronics I decided to stop inside and check out their new digs. (e:terry) wouldnt let me bring our old toilet because he said it was junk but they had 100s of them. The place has lots of great stuff and then a hodge podge of pure junk.

It seems like they are going to have to have some rules about what they take at some point or they will get overun with crap.

Like who is going to want the piece of broken plywood in the picture below?

Electronics Recycling In Buffalo - Even On Sunday!

Its even better than I thought (e:paul,56949) Buffalo Reuse is a Sunking drop off point and they are open on Sundays. This means I can drop off a lot of old home things I don't want and the electronics all at once. Not only that they are open on Sundays from 12 to 4. Yippie!

Scraping Metal at Twin City Recycling

I had been hording so much scrap metal in the basement over the last 5 years. Today I decided enough was enough and it was all going out. The old car dashboard that came with the house, the old furnace and tons of broken fixtures and pipes.

It was back breaking work. I managed to move 440lbs of metal into the truck and then drive the stickshift pickup to Twin city Recycling on Broadway in Depew.

Driving a stick shift was quite an ordeal but I only stalled once trying to turn around in our driveway. The last time I drove stick was in 1999.

In the end I made $118. The 22 lbs of copper was almost half of it. The rest doesn't seem worth it for 5 years of collecting and 4 hours of back breaking work. I think next rime I have scrap its going out with the regular recyclables so the scavengers can get it along with the beer bottles.

Still it feels good to have the basement clear. Eventually I would like to refinish part of it to put a little gym in.

I was totally amazed at all the stuff in the scrap pile. People basically bring anything that contains metal and then they way your car coming in and going out. The give you the price of the difference in weight for scrap. Precious metals go in a different area where they are sorted and weighed individually.

Electronics Recycling Facility in Buffalo

I wish I had realized this before. There is an actual facility where you can go to drop off electronics instead of having to wait for a specific day. Its called Sunnking and its at 1120 Seneca Street. I just wish it, as well as, the metal scraping facilities were open on Sundays.
