Separate Collections Will Resume in April 2019

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 2019.

The date of the last 2018 “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 with no “Y” days on their schedule should continue to place yard materials out with trash on scheduled trash collection days.

Residents may go online to view their trash and recycling collection schedule and program guide by visiting the Bureau of Solid Waste Management’s website, or they may call 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. 

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