The second part of our Buffalo Place New York Main Street program streetscape project included the installation of 23 new garbage cans along Main Street and 7 dog waste bag dispensers. These amenities help to keep Downtown clean.
Several of the new garbage cans are located on the block between Seneca and Swan where the large wind calming structure was taking down last summer. Because the structure occupied much of the block, there were few amenities there. Other garbage cans replace the outdated ones that are more than 30 years old and supplement the limited number of cans on those blocks. The new garbage cans match the ones installed on the blocks that have had Cars on Main Street projects completed.
The dog waste bags are helpful for those who take care of their furry friends, which we have seen more of with the rise of Downtown residential living. Funding for the streetscape project is provided by the New York State Homes & Community Renewal.
