JUST A FRIENDLY REMINDER: IN ORDER FOR TRASH AND RECYCLING COLLECTION TO CONTINUE DURING THIS STATE OF EMERGENCY, IT IS OF THE UTMOST IMPORTANCE TO KEEP OUR TOWN EMPLOYEES SAFE FROM BEING EXPOSED TO COVID-19.

• ALL GRASS PICKUP WILL BE TEMPORARILY SUSPENDED until the State of Emergency ends. Please mulch your grass. It is good fertilizer. Otherwise please put your grass in your garbage tote or drop it off at the sanitation department where we have a sanitation truck available for you to dump your bagged grass.
• Only town-authorized garbage and recyclable totes shall be used for collection by the Town. No bags outside of both the town-authorized garbage and recycling totes will be picked up. Please place all non-recyclable garbage in garbage bags before they are put into the tote.
• Large household furniture will be limited to one item at curbside. In addition, large amounts of solid waste left at the curb will not be picked up. A dumpster should be rented for any of your move-outs or spring cleaning. Mattresses will still be picked up but must be placed in a plastic bag.
• “Brush” and “tree parts” defined as cuttings from shrubs, hedges and trees will be picked up, however, residents must bring them loosely to the road and cannot use containers or bags.

Please call the Sanitation Department at 686-3426 with any further questions.

Due to the State of Emergency declared by Governor Cuomo, Cheektowaga's Sanitation Department is required to make the following changes:

• All grass pick-up will be temporarily suspended until the State of Emergency ends. The town council recently cancelled a public hearing to consider a permanent end to grass pickup, but as of now no resolution has passed changing grass pickup on a permanent basis.

• Only town-authorized garbage and recyclable totes shall be used for collection by the Town. No bags outside of both the town-authorized garbage and recycling totes will be picked up. Please place all non-recyclable garbage in garbage bags before they are put into the tote.

• Large household furniture will be limited to one item at curbside. In addition, large amounts of solid waste left at the curb will not be picked up. A dumpster should be rented for any of your move-outs or spring cleaning. Mattresses will still be picked up but must be placed in a plastic bag.

• “Brush” and “tree parts” defined as cuttings from shrubs, hedges and trees will be picked up, however, residents must bring them loosely to the road and cannot use containers or bags.

In order for garbage and recycling collection to continue, it is of the utmost importance to keep our town employees safe from being exposed to COVID-19. Our town Sanitation Department is working collaboratively with other departments to provide both safety and service to our community. Sanitation Foreman Scott Kowal said, “We thank our residents for their cooperation during these difficult times. I am very proud of my employees for continuing to serve residents during this crisis.”

If you have any questions, please contact our Sanitation Department at (716) 686-3426.

The Cheektowaga Police Department would like to ensure our residents that we are ready to continue to respond to calls for service in the town. We have made some operational changes that we would like the public to be aware of. If you call our dispatch and need the police, fire or ambulance to respond to your home, you will be asked a couple screening questions. These questions are intended to help our first responders remain healthy and ready to respond to the next call for service. If you are calling to report a crime that is not in progress, has no follow up and there is no evidence to collect, you will be asked to provide a phone number and an officer will call you to take the report over the phone. We are prohibiting visitors to our headquarters and ask that you only come to our station if it is essential.

This is an unprecedented situation that is constantly changing. We are working closely with the health professionals and will continue to provide professional emergency services to the residents and visitors of Cheektowaga. We urge our citizens to follow the guidelines suggested by the Erie County Health Department. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
