Seymour is the first community in the Midwest to be using one of the hybrid trucks.
Seymour took a bold step forward in the national movement toward better fuel efficiency and emissions reduction Friday afternoon with the unveiling of its new E3 automated hybrid recycle truck.
Mayor Craig Luedeman said the truck will play a big part in helping the city keep its curbside recycling program free to residents.
“This is truly a magnificent truck for today and especially for the future,” he said during a ceremony held in the grassy lot at Tipton and Walnut streets across from Schneck Medical Center.
