Changes Coming for Refuse Collection in Town

2/24/2022

The Town of Victoria has a new refuse truck on order to aid in providing more efficient and safer service to the citizens of the Town of Victoria.  The new truck which is known as an automated side loader will allow refuse receptacles to be picked up by the truck arm and emptied into the side of the truck instead of having to be lifted manually into the rear of the truck.  It is hoped that this truck will be delivered in the early summer time frame.  Along with the purchase of the truck the town will also be purchasing rolling refuse carts with one cart provided for each residential customer.  The first cart will be provided at no cost to the customer. The details are still being worked out on the policy if more than one cart is needed per residence.  The Town of Victoria is striving to improve services to its citizens and ask your patience as we make these changes.
