Frequently Asked Questions
How can I encourage my neighbors to recycle?
I have heard that there are new items added to the recycling program, what are they and how should they be packaged?
Is there a restriction on the quantity of trash that I can put out?
Do I have to put my rubbish out in trash cans?
I just had my bathroom remodeled. I put the wood, cabinet, and tile out for pick-up, but it was left behind. How can I get the Town of Belmont to pick these items up?
I have an old metal swing set that I need to dispose of. Will the regular trash truck pick it up, or do I need to call for a special pick up?
I put my trash out this morning for pick up, but the trash truck had already been down my street. They usually come after 9:00 am, but today they were early. How can I get my trash picked up?
When composting, how long do I need to wait for good soil to develop?
When I am composting, I do not see any worms when I turn the soil. Should I worry?
Can I recycle bottle caps?
I recently cut down a tree. I cut the wood to 3 feet in length, tied a bundled it. Some of the bundles were taken and some were not. Are there other specifications?
