The City of Carterville along with Republic Services is reminding Carterville residential trash customers to place their trash carts as close to the roadway as possible.  When the trash carts are placed close to the road, it allows the trash truck to stay in the lane of the roadway and still reach the carts with the truck’s automated arm.  This will prevent the trash trucks from parking and driving along the edges and shoulders of the road surfaces.  We have experienced some road surface damage in the past and hope to prevent this in the future.  If there are any questions, please conatct the Carterville Water and Sewer Department at 618-985-2011.
