Waste Management will not pick up or will sticker any carts that are not completely closed, carts that contain unacceptable items, or if additional trash is in unofficial carts or bags. The Town of Belmont will not send Waste Management back to empty carts if the street has already been serviced, or once they have been stickered.  To prevent a missed pickup, carts must be curbside prior to 7am on your regularly scheduled pickup day.  If your trash or recycling was not picked up please notify the DPW office at 617-993-2680 no later than 12pm the next business day. Messages can be left on the DPW voicemail after business hours.

Reminder: Trash & Recycling carts must be curbside prior to 7am on your regularly scheduled pick up day.
