DICKSON CITY, Pa. -- A borough in Lackawanna County had to borrow a garbage truck to catch up on collections.

Dickson City used a Blakely truck to pick up garbage Monday morning. The borough's truck had been in the shop for repairs since last week causing trash to pile up on streets.

Officials tell us Dickson City's truck has been fixed.

The borough manager says trash should be picked up and collections back on schedule by Tuesday.
