Falls official: Keep electronics off curb

Niagara Gazette — Electronics no longer accepted

Department of Public Works officials are working to remind people that Waste Management no longer takes electronics.

Televisions and computer monitors have been left curbside around the city, as Waste Management workers are barred from accepting electronic equipment by a state law that took effect in January of 2012

Michael Mills, a project manager for DPW, said the city will soon start ticketing properties with electronics left at the curb, as they would for any other garbage.

“We’ve given some leeway since the law passed but this is becoming a real problem,” Mills said.

Residents can dispose of electronics by bringing them to the DPW yard on New Road from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on the second Thursday of every month.

Workers from DPW have been working to clean up electronics around the city whenever weather prevents them from doing other work,” Mills said.

“T.V.’s are getting smashed. There’s glass all over the place,” Mills said. “Our guys will come back with four or five truck loads in a day.”

Do you think cigarette sales to non-Native American customers should be taxed on reservations?

Yes. Items should be taxed like they are everywhere else.
No, the indian reservations are sovereign land and they are selling them on their land.
Not up to me. Native Americans decide the rules on their land.
Don't care. Smoking isn't good for you.
