Accident causes disruption in trash service

westbrook trash truckCitizens in Westbrook need to be aware that trash pick-up services are temporarily on hold, as city officials have to acquire a new vehicle to haul it. An accident involving the pickup and trailer caused significant damage to the vehicle, but no one was seriously injured in the wreck.
According to city officials, the accident took place on Friday, July 15th. The vehicle was badly damaged and could not be used for further city services, so Mayor Lynn Gaston is in the process of acquiring a replacement vehicle.
For now, citizens can use the large roll-off dumpsters that have been placed in the alley behind the new City Hall, located on Thorne Street. While the conditions aren’t perfect, the city is making an effort to provide a way for citizens to dispose of their garbage appropriately.
“We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, and we appreciate citizens’ patience while we’re in the process of getting things taken care of,” City Secretary Pansy Fernandez said Tuesday.
Anyone with questions can contact Westbrook City Hall by calling 325-644-3131.
