Bulk trash remains suspended due to the pandemic and the number of staff required to sustain the operation. Residents are encouraged to take or have bulk items taken to one of DPW's five Citizens’ Convenient Centers.
How To Get Bulk Items Collected
Every month, Baltimoreans can place up to three items out for collection. One day per month is set aside for this collection. All citizens have to do is call 311 and tell us:

Where and how should it be placed?
