Trash Pilot Program: Liberty City Council met Tuesday and voted to approve a pilot program proposed by the city’s solid waste pick up provider, L.T.’s Garbage Service. The program will introduce larger 96 gallon, two-wheel trash carts at selected areas of the city this summer. The program is to determine if Liberty residents like these larger trash receptacles. There is no additional cost to residents for allowing the program, and trash pick up in Liberty to still be twice a week. L.T.’s owner, Bill Killion, told council the carts provide additional safety to his employees, who in most cases will not be required to get off the garbage truck to pick up all the garbage cans at each stop. Mr. Killion said this is especially unsafe in areas of high motor vehicle traffic. The areas where the pilot cart program will be introduced are along FM 563 south of U. S. 90 and at the north Hwy 146 area near Stripes convenience store.
