No Trash, Recycling or Yard Materials Collection on Thanksgiving Day; Drop-Off Centers Closed

On Thursday, November 24, trash, single stream recyclables and yard materials will not be collected in Baltimore County, and all drop-off centers will be closed.

Residents are reminded that this holiday will follow the County’s new “slide” schedule for make-up collection days. All trash, recycling and yard material curbside collections scheduled on or after Thursday, November 24, will shift and occur one day later that week:

For addresses on a twice-per-week trash schedule, the first trash collection during the holiday week will occur per the rules above, and the second trash collection will not occur.

If further clarification is needed, residents may consult their specific collection schedule to learn when to set out materials during weeks that contain a collection holiday.
