Gosnell buys new garbage truck

GOSNELL, AR (KAIT) - Days after announcing the city would collect its own garbage, Gosnell announced the purchase of a garbage truck.

The city showed off the new 2019 International Garbage Truck on Facebook Monday.

The post also asked residents to only put household garbage in their trash cans. Wood, rocks, paint cans, metal, and other such materials should be left out.

In June, the city decided not to contract out garbage services.

At the time, City Clerk Kathleen Hunt-Cross said this would save the city about $100,000 per year.
