Town of Lockport buys new recycling bins

LOCKPORT – The Town Board last week agreed to buy 1,000 18-gallon recycling bins and 200 32-gallon bins with lids, to replace missing or damaged bins. Otto Environmental Systems of Charlotte, N.C., the town’s usual recycling bin contractor, will be paid $13,450 for the bins.

Councilman Mark C. Crocker said the town has a year and a half left on its current contract with Waste management. After that, the town may consider switching to wheeled totes.

“This should get us through the next two years. I don’t think we’ll have a lot of leftovers,” Supervisor Marc R. Smith said,
