Trash and Recycling Collection Normal, Drop-off Facilities Open

Baltimore County government offices, and the District and Circuit Courts, will be closed on Monday, January 21 in recognition of Martin Luther King Jr. Day.  Health department clinics, libraries and senior centers will be closed, and CountyRide vans will not operate.  Parking meters must be fed and Baltimore County Revenue Authority parking garages will be open as usual.

Trash and recyclables will be collected according to the normal schedule.  The County’s trash and recycling drop-off facilities will be open. Residents can log onto www.baltimorecountymd.gov/solidwaste for more information about recycling and trash collection, including schedules and drop-off center locations and hours.  Residents may also call the Bureau of Solid Waste Management at 410-887-2000.

Collection schedules are also available on the County’s new BaltCoGo app, available on mobile phones. The app is offered free of charge to Android and iPhone users and may be downloaded from their respective app stores. 


Says Particularly Appalling in Context of Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday Weekend

Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz today issued the statement below following President Trump’s attack on the people of Haiti and African nations:

“As the leader of an increasingly diverse and growing county, I note the sharp irony that while we celebrate the enduring legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., we are plagued by the racist and ignorant words of our American president. President Trump’s disgraceful slurs against the people of Haiti and the continent of Africa are inexcusable.

Dr. King surely would be saddened by the continuing racial discrimination and inequality in our modern society. ‘Nothing in all the world,' he said, ‘is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.’  Fitting words to match current times.”
