COVID-19 Coronavirus Updates and Guidance

The County is taking a number of actions to keep residents safe and minimize the spread of COVID-19. Find status information for County operations and services.

Severe Weather Status: Trash and Recycling

August 14, 2020 9:48 PM

Current Status: Trash and Recycling Collection

Operating

Trash and Recycling Collection

Trash, recycling and yard material collections are running normally; please follow your regularly-scheduled collection days for all materials (including the usual holiday schedule). However, there are still high volumes of material being collected, and collectors may not be able to take all bags of yard material on a single collection day. If this happens, please leave your yard material out until collection occurs.

Current Status: Drop-Off Centers

Open

Trash and Recycling Drop-Off Centers

All three drop-off centers are currently in service with normal operating hours (including the usual holiday schedule). However, visitors and employees are now required to wear masks onsite and adhere to all social distancing guidelines. These requirements will be strictly enforced. Driver's licenses will still be scanned to confirm residency.

What to Expect in Severe Weather

In bad weather, trash and recycling collection may not occur at the "usual" time, or even on the scheduled day. In cases of inclement weather, check this page or the County's severe weather page for collection status updates. You may also call our 24-hour customer service message system at 410-887-2000.

If your trash or recycling collection does not occur on its scheduled day due to weather related issues, residents' drop-off facilities may be open for you to take your materials rather than wait for the next scheduled pick-up. Please check this page or call 410-887-2000 before visiting any of the drop-off facilities, as they may also be closed in times of extreme weather conditions.
