Severe Weather Status: Trash and Recycling

October 22, 2021 12:39 PM

Current Status: Trash and Recycling Collection


Trash and recycling collections are running normally; please follow your regularly-scheduled collection days for all materials (including the usual holiday schedule).

Current Status: 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 required to 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.
