West Seneca

Bids for garbage and recycling totes will be opened Monday morning in the town clerk’s office.

The town teamed up with the City of Lackawanna to seek bids for wheeled garbage totes with attached lids, which are considered a major weapon in the ongoing fight against rodent infestations in Buffalo’s first-ring suburbs. The town also sought bids for recycling totes.

Only two bids were submitted during the original solicitation, but other companies contacted town officials afterward, claiming they never received specifications. The Town Board voted to reject the first two bids, which also came in higher than expected.
