An Erie, Pa., firm has been awarded the contract to provide recycling totes to the town sometime next year.

Rehrig Pacific Co. submitted the sole bid. It will supply 35-, 65- and 95-gallon totes. The contract was awarded during last Monday’s meeting of the Town Board.

Earlier this month, Allied Waste Services of North America was awarded a five-year contract, effective April 1, 2014, to collect and dispose of recyclables left curbside.

Recyclables will be collected every other week.
