As "best as it can," according to Town Hall.
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.

But the approval did not come without a final angry and loud outburst from a playground abutter. “Are you saying that Bobby Stafford is more important than (those in town who do not want the scoreboard)?” shouted Anthony Giuffrida Jr. of Choate Road to Selectman Angelo Firenze. “That’s exactly what I’m saying!” said Firenze who was clearly frustrated by the level of complaints about the scoreboard.
