TOWSON, MD—Baltimore County residents are reminded that the second scheduled bulk item collection day for single-family and town homes this year will be occurring sometime between July 8 and December 29. Residents received a postcard in December 2021 indicating their two specific collection dates for the year; residents can also find their scheduled bulk item collection days on the County’s website or by calling the Bureau of Solid Waste Management at 410-887-2000.
At the start of 2022, Baltimore County implemented its new bulk item collection program, in which each single-family home and town home in the County receives two free pre-scheduled bulk item collections during the calendar year. A limit of three items are accepted on each bulk collection day. The County recommends residents set out bulk items the night before their scheduled bulk collection day, and leave these items out until collection occurs—two different trucks provide bulk item collection (one for scrap metal and one for all other items) and may not arrive at the same time.
More information about the program, including restricted items and set-out instructions, is available on the Bureau of Solid Waste Management’s website.
Residents may also continue to take bulk items to all three County drop-off facilities, year-round, at no charge (limit six loads per calendar year; a disposal preauthorization may be required in some cases).
