Will Resume April 2017

The separate collection of yard materials (for Baltimore County residents with “Y” days on their collection schedules) will halt in December, and will resume in April 2017.

The date of the last 2016 “Y” day varies among County collection schedules. Residents must refer to their particular schedule for details (the final “Y” day will occur within the first two weeks of December).

Please note that after the last “Y” day occurs on a particular schedule, yard materials can be placed out with trash on a scheduled trash collection day.

Residents may go online to view their trash and recycling collection schedule and program guide by visiting the Bureau of Solid Waste Management’s website. Collection schedules and program guides can also be obtained by calling 410-887-2000.

Baltimore County residents are reminded that raking or blowing leaves into the gutter or street is illegal.
