The 2019 Public Works Calendar is in the Mail

Press Release

Baltimore City Department of Public Works Director Rudolph S. Chow, P.E., announced today that the 2019 Department of Public Works (DPW) Calendar is in the mail to Baltimore City residents. The calendar provides a wealth of important information for City residents, with dates and times for scheduled DPW services, convenience center drop-off hours and locations, and upcoming events. 

In addition, each month of the calendar highlights important information about the delivery of DPW services. For instance, January provides information on recycling; March provides information on water system infrastructure investment at Druid Lake; July highlights our investment in improving the quality of our waterways.

The calendar also contains schedule information for quadrant Mechanical Street Sweeping, dates and locations for Household Hazardous Waste Drop-Off days and discount recycle bin sales, and information on the 2019 Big Truck Day Dam Jam, Mayor's Cleanups, City holidays, and on recycling/trash makeup days.

Citizens should keep the calendar handy all year to plan ahead for DPW events and services.

The calendar is free. City residents who have not received a calendar within the next two weeks should call 311 to request one. The calendar will also be posted on-line in English and Spanish at the DPW website.
