General Information
Belton pick up days are 5 days a week. Days are assigned by City location. WCA recognizes 3 holidays - Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day, and New Year's Day.  On the weeks where these days fall, the remaining week's trash days will move back one day from when the holiday occurs. Click here for more information.

WCA begins their route at 7am each day. All items must be to the curb by 7am on your assigned day to ensure timely pick up. 

The cart must be placed at the street curb, away from mailboxes, low hanging branches, shrubbery or other obstacles, including cars. Please place the cart wheels toward the house. Corner houses are encouraged to place the cart on the street address, not on a side street. On collection days, please do not park vehicles at the curb so that the truck can easily approach the cart.

All trash bags must fit in the cart. Do not place anything on top of the cart. 
If a resident has occasional extra trash or yard waste, tags can be purchased at City Hall. A sheet of 5 tags costs $6.50 and can be used for extra trash bags on the ground OR extra yard waste. Tags must be purchased by the sheet. 

If a resident would like a second trash cart, please email or call City Hall at 816.331.4331 to request one.
