GREENWOOD, Miss. (AP) - Greenwood will start its onceaweek garbage pickup on Feb. 16.

Mayor Carolyn McAdams tells The Greenwood Commonwealth (https://bit.ly/1D9G2F8 ) the city doesn’t have enough trucks to start next week as planned.

The city needs three fully automated trucks will be needed. The city only has one. McAdams says two others are being built and should arrive this week.

McAdams says the delay will give the city the opportunity to distribute the cityprovided 95gallon rollout carts - known as toters - to residents before the program starts.

Officials say all garbage must be placed inside the cart.

If homeowners need additional carts for garbage, they may purchase them individually. Carts are available in two sizes - 65 gallons and 95 gallons. The 65gallon ones cost $45, and the 95gallon ones cost $48.
