It's taken about two decades longer than other area communities, but the City of Lockport will finally have curbside recycling this fall after the city's common council passed a contract to use Modern Disposal of Lewiston for at least five years.

That will also get the city of the garbage business, and could save the city up to $10 million over a decade.

The measure, which mayor Michael Tucker called "historic," passed by a 5-1 margin with only Jack Smith voting against it; Smith said in a release that the actual "per cost unit" can't be determined without a city-wide survey.
