ADCO is routinely contacted by customers that are in very complex situations regarding what to do with their waste.

Other generators are facing problems where state or federal agencies have become involved in incidents such as spills and site clean-ups and the generator is facing huge fines. We also get frequently contacted by clients who have a container that is leaking which we are happy to say that we can offer you with overpacking and repacking options if your shipping container the waste is contained in is damaged and in need of being replaced.

About Hazardous Waste Disposal in Buffalo
The disposal of hazardous waste in Buffalo, New York, is subject to local, state, and federal regulations to protect public health and the environment. Here are some general guidelines for disposing of hazardous waste in the Buffalo area:
A. Household Hazardous Waste: For residents of Buffalo, there are often designated Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) collection events organized by the local government. These events provide an opportunity for residents to safely dispose of items like paint, solvents, pesticides, batteries, and electronics. Check with the City of Buffalo or Erie County for information on upcoming HHW collection events.
B. E-Waste Recycling: Electronics and electronic waste can be recycled at designated collection sites or events. It’s important not to dispose of electronic items with regular household waste as they may contain hazardous materials.
C. Pharmaceutical Disposal: To dispose of expired or unwanted prescription medications, Buffalo and surrounding areas often have medication drop-off locations, including pharmacies and law enforcement agencies. Proper disposal of medications helps prevent water pollution and drug abuse.
D. Commercial Hazardous Waste: Businesses generating hazardous waste should comply with federal and state regulations. They typically need to obtain an EPA Identification Number and follow strict guidelines for storage, transportation, and disposal. Buffalo has a hazardous waste management company named ADCO that can assist with the proper disposal of commercial hazardous waste.
E. Recycling and Reusing: Whenever possible, consider recycling or reusing materials to reduce the amount of hazardous waste generated. Many items, such as batteries and certain chemicals, can be recycled.
F. Proper Disposal Facilities: ADCO works with a number of licensed hazardous waste disposal facilities that can handle the disposal of hazardous waste. Businesses and industries must dispose of their waste at these licensed facilities to ensure proper handling and disposal of their hazardous materials.
G. Education and Resources: The City of Buffalo and Erie County often provide educational resources and information on proper hazardous waste disposal. Check their websites or contact their environmental departments for guidance.
It’s important to consult with local authorities and ADCO, as regulations and disposal options change over time. We want to urge you to follow all applicable laws and guidelines to protect the environment and public health when disposing of your hazardous waste in Buffalo and avoid any potential fines from the regulatory agencies.
