Residents whose single stream recycling collection normally would have occurred on December 26 and January 2 are asked to hold those recyclables until the next scheduled day for those items, Monday, January 9, or take them to one of the County’s three drop-off centers.

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.

All trash and recycling drop-off facilities (including the Eastern Sanitary Landfill) and County offices will be closed on Monday, December 26 and Monday, January 2. Drop-off facilities will be open with normal operating hours on Saturday, December 24 (Christmas Eve) and Saturday, December 31 (New Year’s Eve).

Residents can visit the Bureau of Solid Waste Management website or call 410-887-2000 for more information about recycling and trash collection, including drop-off center locations and hours.
