Today, Acting Director Matthew W. Garbark announced that the Department will cancel routine trash and recycling collections for Tuesday, February 2, 2021, due to the inclement weather and icy conditions of many alleys throughout Baltimore City as a result of Winter Storm Orlena. Tuesday’s collections will be made up on Saturday, February 6, 2021.

“Due to the inclement weather and unique infrastructure of our city, we have decided to cancel trash and recycling collections for February 2,” said Acting Director Matthew W. Garbark. “Our top priority must always be the safety of our workers and with more severe weather and temperatures expected overnight we want to do our part and stay off the roads to help City crews get streets cleared so residents can get moving safely again.”
