City of Belmont Selects Waste Pro For Garbage & Recycling Services

BELMONT, NC – May 31, 2011 Beginning July 5th, residents inside the Belmont City limits will have garbage removal and recycling collection services provided by Waste Pro. The contract, consisting of approximately 4,200 homes and over 200 businesses, was previously serviced by Waste Management. Waste Pro’s single-stream recycling proposal, paired with their emphasis on exceptional customer service allowed them to secure the contract through a unanimous vote.

The residential and recycling collection services will be managed by Waste Pro’s office, located at 185 Manor Avenue SW, Concord, NC 28025. Residential garbage collection will be done on a weekly basis, with recycling collection taking place every two weeks. City residents will be receiving new grey 96 gallon garbage carts and an additional blue 96 gallon cart for recycling collection. The City hopes the new single stream recycling services, in addition to more portable containers, will increase participation in the residential recycling program. Waste Pro will also begin handling yard waste collection, in place of City Collection, with this service schedule remaining the same.

“The awarding of this contract marks our first within Gaston County and will allow the citizens of Belmont the opportunity to experience the exceptional service and level of partnership we are known for”, states Tim Dolan, Waste Pro Regional Vice President.
