For residential trash customers in Belton, the transition from self-provided trash containers to vendor-provided, trash and recycling carts begins on Monday, Dec. 16. It is anticipated that all residential customers in the City will have carts delivered by the end of the day on Dec. 21.
Although carts are being delivered in advance of the Christmas holiday, customers should continue to place their current containers at the curbside for service until the week of Jan. 6 when the new trash and recycling collection schedules begin.
Collection schedules are changing due to changes in trash collection service from twice-a-week to weekly trash collection with every-other-week recycling. Waste Management, the City's current trash vendor, will provide both services. The changes include a slight decrease in residential trash fees.
The new collection schedules and additional information will be delivered with the carts. Collection schedules are also available at www.beltontexas.gov/garbage or www.beltontexas.gov/recycling.
