City trash

Todd Brown mans one of the new city trash trucks, which are safer and hold more, but not as efficient as the ones lost in a recent fire.

Sometimes, as Scottish poet Robert Burns wrote, “the best laid plans of mice and men often go awry.” No one knows this better today in the city of New Castle than Street Department Supt. Lee Walker.

A month after Walker decided to change the city trash pick-up schedule, moving Monday’s trash pick-up to Wednesdays, he’s going to have to move it back.
