Winter Storm Update 1 -- Friday Trash Collection Canceled
Thursday, Feb. 3
Residential trash and brush collection services are canceled on Friday, Feb. 4, due to hazardous road concerns related to the winter storm. On Thursday afternoon, Belton's most traveled roads are slushy but passable, however, the roads are expected to refreeze overnight.
Trash and brush collections are scheduled to resume normal schedules on Monday. Next week only, Thursday and Friday trash customers will be allowed to place an additional up to three bags next to their cart for collection.
The residential bulk drop-off at the Public Works yard, 1502 Holland Road, has been pushed back a week to Saturday, Feb. 12. Residents must show a form of ID to use the service, which is for disposal of items too big for curbside collection. The drop-off is a bimonthly service typically on the first Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
A decision about whether other city offices will be open on Friday will be made later today.
