Baltimore County offers separate yard materials collection service
Wednesday, 23 July 2014 10:57
    Baltimore County is collecting yard materials for recycling separately from trash for residents with a “Y” on their schedule through mid-December.
    For residents with no “Y” days on their schedule, yard materials will be collected with the trash.
    While county residents may set out an unlimited number of bags of yard materials, the collector may not be able to pick up all bags on the same day. Residents should leave yard materials out until collection occurs.
    Yard materials acceptable for recycling include grass, leaves, vines, twigs, shrubbery trimmings and some branches and limbs. Branches and limbs must not exceed three inches in diameter or three feet in length and must be tied in bundles that do not weigh more than 30 pounds.
    While residents can use paper or plastic lawn bags to set out yard materials, paper is preferred. Do not use trash cans.
    For more information about the county’s trash and recycling collection program, visit www.baltimorecountymd.gov/solidwaste or call 410-887-2000.
