Towson, MD – May 26, 2022 -  On Monday, May 30, trash, single stream recyclables and yard materials will not be collected in Baltimore County, and all drop-off centers will be closed.

This holiday marks the first use of the County’s new “slide” schedule for make-up collection days. All trash, recycling and yard material curbside collections scheduled on or after Monday, May 30, will shift and occur one day later that week:

  • Monday collections shift to Tuesday
  • Tuesday collections shift to Wednesday
