Recycling suspended for three weeks due to coronavirus outbreak
Due to an outbreak of coronavirus among employees at the City Department of Public Works (DPW) east side solid waste station, the City will suspend curbside recycling service for three weeks. Household recycling will not be picked up.
For more info:
1) Drop-off recycling with your vehicle at a DPW service center:
The Sisson Street Citizen Drop-Off Center, 2840 Sisson Street (reportedly reopening today, June 10)
Northwest Transfer Station, 5030 Reisterstown Road, Monday-Saturday 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. (bulk trash items accepted)
Quarantine Road Landfill, 6100 Quarantine Road. Monday-Saturday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. (bulk trash items accepted)
2) If you do not have a vehicle, consider partnering with a neighbor who owns a vehicle and may be willing to help bring recycling to Sisson Street or another DPW location. If you do have a vehicle and intend to visit Sisson Street, please consider reaching out to your neighbors who may not be able to adapt as well to this sudden suspension of a vital City service.
3) You can conserve recycling during this period by washing it thoroughly (in order to eliminate pest problems) and flattening boxes, crushing cans, etc. (to reduce volume). Do not place recycling in alleys during the suspension period.
4) Trash pickup will continue as regularly scheduled on Tuesdays.
5) Other DPW services, such as bulk trash pickup and the community dumpster program, remain suspended during the state of emergency.
Let's please work together to keep our lovely neighborhood clean and blooming with beauty during these trying times.
Yours in Abell Solidarity,
Sanitation Committee Chair
