City of Tonawanda

Residents will begin receiving letters later this week explaining the city’s new recycling program, which includes replacing the current 10-gallon bins with 65-gallon totes, Mayor Rick Davis said.

The new totes are black, like the city’s garbage totes, but with a green lid. Delivery begins June 23.

The city purchased about 7,000 totes from Rehrig Pacific, a Pennsylvania-based manufacturer, and each comes has a 10-year guarantee, the mayor said.

Recycling pickup will switch from weekly to biweekly, beginning July 14.

This week:

• A regular meeting of the Tonawanda School Board begins at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday in Tonawanda High/Middle School, 600 Fletcher St.
