TSM – ABC Trash Collection Truck

Mayor Jon Mitchell and ABC Disposal are touting the new trash collection program to start this summer in New Bedford.

ABC’s Jerry Dougan says the trucks can work even in congested neighborhoods…..

Both ABC and Mayor Mitchell say there will be no job losses due to this new system which begins June 23rd.

New trash and recycle bins will be provided for the program at no cost to single, two, or three family dwellings.  The city will be holding more educational sessions and will send residents informational flyers by mail.
