Offices, Most Facilities Closed December 25 and January 1

Baltimore County government offices will be closed on Monday, December 25 in observance of the Christmas Day holiday, including Health Department clinics, Circuit and District Courts, senior centers, drop-off centers and the landfill, and CountyRide vans will not operate. The same schedule is in place for Monday, January 1 in observance of the New Year’s Day holiday. See below for details on library hours, and trash and recycling collection and facilities schedules during the holiday weekends.

Library Schedules

All branches of the Baltimore County Public Library are closed on Sunday, December 24 and on Monday, December 25 for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Library branches will be open regular Sunday hours on New Year’s Eve and will be closed on Monday, January 1 for New Year’s Day.

No trash or recycling collection on Christmas and New Year’s Days; drop-off centers closed

The impact of holidays varies among Baltimore County collection schedules. County residents should consult their particular collection schedule to learn when materials should be set out during weeks that contain a collection holiday. Schedules are available for download on the Bureau of Solid Waste Management’s website and may also be requested by calling 410-887-2000. New 2018 through 2021 schedules are being mailed to residents of single family homes this month, and will be available for download on the County’s website by January 1.

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.

Baltimore County offices and trash and recycling drop-off facilities, including the Eastern Sanitary Landfill in White Marsh, will be closed on Monday, December 25 and Monday, January 1. County offices will be open from December 26 through December 29, and all three drop-off facilities will be open with regular operating hours from December 26 through December 30.
