The Aftermath: How to Get Rid of All That Holiday Cardboard in Belmont

Now that all your holiday presents are unwrapped, the Highway Division of the Belmont Public Works Department asks that residents recycle all of their cardboard in the following way:

  • All boxes must be flattened with a dimension smaller than 3 feet by three feet (3’X3′) about the size of your average four year old.
  • The cardboard must be cut, not folded, to make the above measurement.
  • If you have a great deal of cardboard, tie or tape them in stacks not higher than nine inches wide. Residents can leave an unlimited number of stacks for pickup.

    As a resident who recycles over 90% of household waste, the paper recycle regulations in Belmont are ridiculous and onerous. It’s time for single-stream recycling in this town. Let’s stop living in the last millennium!!!
