Where we live: Cheektowaga


The town has received a $1,000 check that will be used to maintain communication with residents about its recycling program, which has seen an increase in participation since implementing the use of wheeled recycling totes.

The check from Republic Services is part of the company’s Community Partnership Education Program. Now in the second year of an agreement with Republic for bi-weekly collection of recyclables, the town’s volume is up by 16 percent, according to Town Supervisor Mary F. Holtz.

Lawmakers said the town will use the $1,000 to keep the public informed about the pickup schedule, as well as additions to the list of items eligible for recycling.
