While Hurricane Sandy may have closed down much of the East Coast, it isn't stopping trash pick up in Belmont.
According to an email message from David Kale, Belmont's Town Administrator, street side trash pickup will continue on schedule despite the arrival of the storm later today, Monday, Oct. 29.
"Trash will be pick-up as best as it can," said Kale.
The action by the town and its hauler, FW Russell & Sons of Cambridge, should not come as a surprise to Belmont residents. Two years ago, at the height of a blizzard that closed the town and schools, residents were surprised to see trash trucks rumbling down unpaved streets on their scheduled runs.
Residents should call the Belmont Department of Public Works with any questions at 617-993-2680.
