Chillicothe Gets New Garbage Trucks< < Back to
Late trash pick up shouldn't be a problem for Chillicothe residents thanks to new garbage trucks.
The Chilliocothe City Council allotted $300,000 earlier this year to replace two city garbage trucks that were 18 to 20 years old. The city's new garbage trucks are expected to be more efficient and compact the trash more compactly.
One of the new trucks is currently being used with the next truck expected to be up and running in the next couple weeks. The city plans to discard one current truck, keep another for parts, and keep a third in service.
City officials say they hope the new trucks are the start of a process to replace other outdated city equipment.
