Beverly Hills and Imperial Beach, move over.
Huntington Park will join a handful of Southern California cities that will have automated trash pickup.
The City Council, in approving an ordinance last week, will pick up a tab of $267,000 to pay for 4,500 100-gallon barrels to be given to residences of three units or less. The new system will go into effect Dec. 1.
One barrel will be allotted to each household and residents will be required to put all their trash in the new containers.
The trash collection company serving the city, System Disposal Inc., will purchase two specially designed trucks to pick up the trash.
