Waste truck breaks Hillside exit gate

A waste truck ran into the exit gate of the Hillside Apartment Complex over the weekend, leaving the gate damaged until Belmont can replace the parts.

Belmont Facilities Services management reached out to the vendor who makes the gate, but the parts needed for repair will not be available for another four weeks, said Anthony Donovan, Belmont’s associate dean of students and director of residence life.

In the meantime, the gate will remain open while the vendor works to repair the gate, said Donovan.

“Though the gates will remain open for the next 4 weeks, security will be increased in that area,” Donovan said.
