New Use for Totes Discovered in Falls

September 30, 2014

Don't let it be said that Mayor Paul Dyster's decision to make the recycling totes larger than the refuse totes was not a bright idea.

At least one person, living in Niagara Falls, has found good use for the oversized totes.

One of our advertisers found this person camped out in this tote following his eviction from a property.

We applaud the man's ingenuity.

And while some may say this is an apparent contradiction since the Reporter is generally opposed to more subsidized housing, unlike Hope VI and the proposed South Junior Project, this subsidized housing didn't cost taxpayers several hundred thousands of dollars. Each tote cost about $50.

Maybe it will catch on, in a city where poverty is what we plan for.

There is a whole national trend toward micro-housing or mini-houses.

People are building houses 15 x 10 feet.

These gorgeous, hardly used totes may become the new micro- mobile home version of that trend. They come on wheels.

Sleeps one comfortably.
