JONESBORO, AR - If you live in Jonesboro, you may soon be seeing some sparkling new sanitation trucks soon making the rounds in your neighborhood.

The city's sanitation department this week received six new high-tech trucks that have some new "bells and whistles" not found on the old trucks.  Sanitation department director Royce Leonard says the new trucks are part of a two-year lease-purchase agreement.

One of the new trucks are already in service, and the five remaining trucks are expected to be in service by next week.
