New Year's Holiday Closings

Towson, Maryland (December 27, 2013) – Baltimore County government offices and the District and Circuit Courts, will be closed on Wednesday, January 1 in observance of New Year's Day.

On that day, there will be no charge for metered parking or in County-operated parking garages. Health Department clinics, libraries, senior centers, landfills, drop-off centers and the County animal shelter will be closed, and CountyRide van service will not run.

New Year's Eve Schedule

On New Year's Eve, Tuesday, December 31, County offices, senior centers, Health Department clinics, the animal shelter, landfills and drop-off centers will be open and trash and recycling collection will be normal. Circuit and District Courts will be closed on New Year's Eve and libraries will close at 5:30 p.m.

No Trash and Recycling Collection on January 1

Baltimore County residents whose trash would normally have been collected on Wednesday, January 1, should set it out on Wednesday night to be collected on Thursday, January 2.

Residents whose single-stream recycling collection normally would have occurred on January 1 are asked to hold those recyclables until the next scheduled day for those items, Wednesday, January 8, or take them to one of the County's three drop-off centers.

Collections of all types may occur later than usual during the last week of December and the first week of January, because more material must be collected in fewer collection days. If a collection does not occur on the scheduled day during this period of time, the materials should be left out until collection occurs.

Drop-Off Centers

Trash and recycling drop-off centers, including the Eastern Sanitary Landfill, as well as County offices, will be closed on Wednesday, January 1. Drop-off centers will be open with normal hours Tuesday,  December 31 (New Year's Eve).

Residents can visit BCrecycles for more information about recycling and trash collection, including drop-off center locations and hours. Residents may also call the Bureau of Solid Waste Management at 410-887-2000.
