Waste officials are continuing to answer the public about new trash carts. Officials say that while the orange trash carts continue to appear across Hardin County, the old carts aren’t ready to be picked up yet. Red River vice president Steve Smith says that crews are still working to get the new, bright orange carts distributed to customers within the Hardin County system. Smith says the old carts will be picked up as soon as distribution is complete.
The new carts are part of the new, 8-year franchise agreement with the county.
