WCA Waste announced a new trash pick-up schedule that will begin next week.
Magistrate Jeff Simms, who also serves as the municipal account manager of WCA Waste, announced the upcoming changes at Tuesday's Caldwell Fiscal Court meeting.
"It's an opportunity to provide better service," he told the Times Leader, adding that the routing is driven by Global Positioning System (GPS). "We've been working on this for several months. It's the first time that a trash company has undertaken this in Princeton.
"We're just trying to improve our pickup ability and using the locating features to do so."
Simms said that the cost for trash pickup and billing will not change, as the Princeton Electric Plant Board will continue to handle billing duties.
"We will have extra trucks and staff stationed the first couple of weeks of the new days for any problems that occur," he said.
Those with questions about the new scheduling can call 270-365-6200 from 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
Simms added that although the change begins on Monday, it will not be affected by the Washington's Birthday holiday.
