Separate Yard Waste Collection to Halt for the Winter Season

Collection Ends in December; Will Resume April 2014

Towson, Maryland (November 29, 2013) – 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 2014.

The date of the last 2013 "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 can visit BCrecycles to view, save, and/or print their trash and recycling collection schedule and program guide. Collection schedules and program guides can also be obtained by calling the Bureau of Solid Waste Management at 410-887-2000.

Residents of single-family homes receiving County collection service will also be receiving new 2014-2017 schedules in the mail starting in early December.

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