The town’s garbage truck is back in service.
The 20-year-old vehicle spent three weeks in the shop and created a backlog of trash pickup service. The maintenance repair bill was $4,000.
Jammie Royall, town manager, said Mount Olive’s service appears to be back on schedule and complaints to town hall have decreased.
“I see no need to replace it [the truck] any time soon,” Royall said.
The recycle location drop on Talton Drive helped with yard waste collection.
“Especially during this time of year with leaves being piled up beside the street,” Royall said.
The drop site is open Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. and closes at noon each Saturday.
