Beginning May 1, 2019, curbside recycling will be temporarily suspended. All items placed curbside will be picked up and transported to the landfill. The City Council is looking into and considering all available recycling options. We hope to have a short-term solution soon.

General Information

The Belton City Council approved an ordinance June 27, 2017, to centralize residential solid waste collection with Jim's Disposal Service beginning January 1, 2018

Belton pick up days are either Monday or Tuesday of each week. Days are assigned by city location. Jim's Disposal does not recognize holidays. If your pick up day falls on a holiday, Jim's will still pick up.

Jim's Disposal begins their route at 7:00am each day. All trash and recycling must be out no later than 7:00am on your pick up day to ensure timely collection. 

Trash containers have a black lid. All trash should be in a container. If you have more trash than what will fit in the Jim's container, you may use a personal container or place bags on the curb.

Please note the proper placement of containers at the end of the driveway or at the curb. By placing containers in this fashion, the automated truck can work more efficiently. 
Proper Container Placement

Bulky trash pick up (couches, chairs, etc.) will be scheduled twice a year. DO NOT put these kinds of items out for your weekly trash/recycle pick up. They will only be picked up on the bulky trash pick up days. If you need additional pick ups, please contact Jim's Disposal Service directly 816.408.0220 and they will bill you directly.
