The County of Maui Department of Environmental Management has announced that a new automated refuse truck has arrived on the island of Lanai and is expected to be put in service in early November.

The previous automated refuse truck was more than 10 years old; the new vehicle was approved in the FY 2010 budget and cost $303,928.

The old truck will be utilized by the Solid Waste Division as a backup vehicle in the event that the new truck is out of service for repairs.
