We have recovered more than 157,080 gallons of recycling and diverted it from the waste stream.

Recycling Resources

When you recycle, it helps protect Baltimore City’s environment and our region by reducing trash, preventing pollution, decreasing greenhouse gases which affect our climate and reducing the number of items that are dumped into our landfills.

Throughout the Fall and Winter, Wheelabrator Baltimore made recycling collection sites available throughout the City while the Department of Public Works faced unprecedented staffing and logistical challenges due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As DPW resumes curbside recycling pickup, Wheelabrator Baltimore will staff 13 of City’s recycling Community Collection Centers in an effort to continue to help keep recyclables out of the waste stream during the public health crisis.
