Summary:   On February 28, 2019, five (5) bids were received for a Model 2020 Hino 195 cab and chassis for the Solid Waste Division.  The truck will be used to pick up refuse from residences that are missed during normal refuse collection, for special refuse pickup from elderly and handicapped residents, and for refuse collection in areas where access is limited due to its smaller size.
