City of Lufkin residents should be expecting new huge garbage carts beginning today.
About 600 carts were expected to be changed out today from 65-gallon gray carts to the 96-gallon carts. The city says to receive a new cart all residents have to do is place the old garbage cart out on the curb. Tomorrow they will pick up in the Crown Colony area and south of Whitehouse Drive on both sides of Chesnut, and in Fuller Springs.
It will take about three months to switch about twelve thousand carts. If you don't want to change yours, contact the solid waste services.
