The City of Buffalo's Department of Public Works and Streets has been removing the snow with high lifts in South Buffalo and placing it on dump trucks.  WBFO'S Eileen Buckley says tons of snow is being transported to the Central Terminal on the city's East Side.

In south Buffalo, city crews are hauling mounds of snow because there is no where to put it.  Mayor Brown telling WBFO News they are using the Central Terminal as a major dumping site. http://youtu.be/H1ShbUOLZhE

High lifts are placing the snow form south Buffalo into dump trucks.  Dozens pulled up along the property of the Central Terminal Wednesday which is owned by the city at Memorial Drive. But as dump trucks continued arriving, crews were starting to dump it along the curb on Memorial Drive.
