When you are driving around Lufkin you might notice there are some very large city vehicles. These types of vehicles require a Class B or greater Texas CDL driver's license.

The need right now is for solid waste truck drivers in Lufkin. These workers are the backbone of our city, and I am thankful for them every day.

All we have to do is take our trash cans to the curb and they magically get emptied. If you already do this job know that you are appreciated.
