Where We Live: Orchard Park, 3/6

Orchard Park

The roomy new recycling totes that debuted last month have been so well received that Supervisor Patrick Keem reports people have been asking for even more space.

“The biggest issue seems to be, the 65-gallon tote isn’t big enough,” said Keem.

Extra bins can be bought for about $100, he said. For information, call the town office at 662-6400.
