Solid Waste/Yard Waste/Recycling Update - Cart Update

Solid Waste/Yard Waste/Recycling Update - Cart Update

The City of Belton is canceling its contract with Jim's Disposal effective July 19. Until that time, please continue to use your Jim's Disposal cart, as they will continue picking up through July 16. There will be a plan in place for Jim's Disposal to pick up their carts, although we do not have those details at this time.

Bids for a new solid waste/yard waste/recycling hauler have been received and are being evaluated. No decision has been made yet. In preparation for a new hauler, the City of Belton has ordered trash carts that will be delivered to residents beginning June 17-29, 2019. A postcard was mailed to each resident in Belton regarding trash cart delivery. We are aware everyone received the postcard; although, the cart delivery will only apply to those currently with Jim's Disposal.

Every home will receive the standard 96 gallon cart. Those who are currently a hardship pick up (house-line pick up) will receive a 48 gallon cart. Many have expressed interest in a 65 gallon cart instead of the 96 gallon cart. At this time, we are asking residents to try the 96 gallon carts for at least 30 days. It is likely the new hauler will only accept trash bags INSIDE the cart vs. bags allowed on the ground. Because of that, we want to provide residents with the largest cart possible to dispose of ALL of the trash.

If you would still like a smaller cart, please contact the City beginning MONDAY, AUGUST 26. We have a limited number of 65 gallon carts available for exchange, first come, first served. Once they are gone, there will no longer be an option to exchange carts.

There will be additional information delivered with the carts and updates will be posted (as we receive them) on our website and Facebook page.

If you have additional questions, please call 816.331.4331 or email utilities@belton.org.
