Investigative Post: Recycling comes to Buffalo public housing

BUFFALO, N.Y. - The Buffalo Municipal Housing Authority is finally launching a recycling program that should service all 30 of its developments by the end of this year.

This decision comes almost 10 months after Investigative Post reported that the authority was ignoring a longstanding city ordinance that requires residents of multi-family residences to recycle. The authority is the city's biggest landlord with 4,748 apartments that are home to 7,642 low-income families and senior citizens.

"It is something that we looked as the responsible thing to do and we want to do the right thing," said Modesto Candelario, the authority's assistant executive director.

"We do know there is a city ordinance for this particular requirement and we intend to comply with it."
