DPW Kicks Off Annual Mitten Tree Campaign

Help to make the winter season warmer for Baltimore’s children in need this holiday season. The Baltimore City Department of Public Works (DPW) invites residents and commuters to support the 2017 Mitten Tree campaign by donating mittens, gloves, hats, and scarves.

On Thursday, Dec. 7 at 11:30 a.m., the City’s 44th annual Mitten Tree Campaign launches with a holiday-themed celebration in the lobby of the Abel Wolman Municipal Building, 200 Holliday Street.

Keep FOG out of the Drains this Holiday Season

As you prepare your meals for Thanksgiving and other holidays this season, the Baltimore City Department of Public Works reminds residents to avoid “fatbergs” and other plumbing obstructions by keeping cooking fats, oils and grease (FOG) out of drains.

Make sure your FOG goes “from the pan to the can.”  Instead of pouring grease down the kitchen sink, toilet, or storm drain, pour cooled cooking oil and grease from foods into a metal container or can. Let it cool, then put it in the trash.
