The Emerald Isle Public Works Department has rolled out technology that gives Town residents a bird's eye view of where the yard debris trucks are along their routes. The system will allow residents to view the truck routes and see when their yard debris may be picked up by Public Works staff. Depending on various factors, such as distance traveled and the size of yard debris piles, times may vary on a weekly basis.
This new service was created by Greg Flinn, an independent contractor who has been working with the Town.
"This new system will improve our level of customer service, and will aid our staff when filing yard debris pickup reports," said Artie Dunn, Public Works Director.
