City of Edgewater Announcement: New Garbage Carts / Trucks 

When the changes to the new garbage carts and truck replacements took place, the timeline was matched so that the trucks would be delivered before the carts were delivered. Unfortunately, delivery of the trucks has been delayed due to a shut down at the manufacturing plant due to COVID-19 and then a fire in the manufacturing plant that made components for the trucks. All of this caused a three month delay in the delivery of the trucks which means they now will delivered in early 2021.

Due to this delay, the City purchased can tippers and installed them on the trucks currently in use. However, due to the cost of the tippers, tippers were not purchased for the spare trucks. Recently two of these trucks have been out of service due to various problems which has forced the use of the trucks without tippers while the front line trucks are being repaired. When this happens, temporary personnel are requested to assist in an effort to put two people on the back of a truck without a tipper.
