Schedule a bulky item collection.

Have bulky items the city won’t pick up? You need a junk removal service.

If you have large items that the city won’t take from you, you may need to hire a junk removal service.

Junk removal services are not be as picky about the items they’re collecting so if the city won’t take the item, this may be your best bet. There’s usually a fee involved with junk removal but most companies can tell you ahead of time approximately what it’s going to cost.

There are a number of junk removal services in Belmont and I’m sure many of them will be able to help you out.

What time does trash collection start?

Please place your bins curbside in the street before 6 AM of your service day, with the wheels against the curb and the lid pointed toward the street.

If you live on a street without a curb you can place them roadside. Place your bins about 2-3 feet apart, all facing the same direction. This helps the drivers to ensure quick and safe service.
