New Trash and Recycling Collection Schedules and Guides

Schedules to Be Mailed to Residents in Early December

Towson, Maryland (December 3, 2013) – Approximately 237,500 single-family households in Baltimore County that currently have trash and recycling collection will receive new four-year trash and recycling collection schedules and program guides by the second or third week in December. Residents in households that do not receive their schedule by December 20, 2013 can call the Bureau of Solid Waste Management at 410-887-2000 to obtain a new schedule. Residents may also wait until January 1, at which time new schedules will be available for download at the Solid Waste Management website.

Though the County's current trash and recycling schedules include January 2014 collection information, residents should reference only their new 2014 to 2017 schedules starting January 1. Residents are also urged to check their schedules carefully for collection pattern changes – some collection patterns will be different starting January 1.

New collection schedules will include the County's trash and recycling program guide, which contains detailed information on accepted materials for recycling, collection and container regulations, drop-off center locations and more.

Residents are urged to read, retain, and post their new collection schedules and guides.
