BUFFALO, N.Y. - More Buffalo schools are using green totes to recycle that will help boost the city's recycling rate.

Investigative Post reported in November that only two schools were using the totes that were distributed to residents early last year, and that the district was not doing much otherwise to promote recycling, although some individuals schools were.

Since then, 13 more schools have started using the city's green totes. Allied Waste has also agreed to accept all recyclables in Dumpsters that had only accepted cardboard and paper.
