Annual Recycling Report Form

The City of Baltimore is required to provide an annual report to the Maryland Department of the Environment on recycling tonnage generated within the City as part of the Maryland Recycling Act (MRA). The mandated rate of recycling for Baltimore City is 35 percent.

The Baltimore City Department of Public Works (DPW) requests businesses, multi-family dwellings, office buildings, and any other entity not receiving recycling collection from DPW to report their recycling activity. This participation will not only help reach the City’s 35 percent goal, it will also help such entities gain a better understanding of its waste generation and disposal. This is the first step in improving waste reduction.

For more information on MRA reporting, please visit the Maryland Department of the Environment’s (MDE) website


Please take time to fill out the Annual Business Reporting Survey form and return it to the DPW’s Bureau of Solid Waste. The calculator will help translate container size to tons. If you have any questions, you can reach us at 410-396-4511.

Report forms should be completed and returned
via mail or email by April 5, 2021 to:
