An automated trash truck collects a recepticle. Cape Girardeau city officials are contemplating the purchase of six automated trash trucks and 22,000 containers.

The Cape Girardeau Public Works Department is proposing that the city update its current trash collection system with the purchase of six new trucks with an automated robotic arm. In addition to the six new trucks, the city would also purchase 22,000 trash and recycling carts for residents. The new system will require fewer workers, and will average 1,000 to 1,200 stops per day.

Here’s the story from KRCU.
