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.

As the Department of Public Works faces unprecedented staffing and logistical challenges due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Wheelabrator Baltimore is making recycling collection sites available throughout the city.

To help keep recyclables out of the waste stream during the public health crisis, the company is providing monitored, 30-yard roll-off dumpsters each Saturday to collect recycling that is delivered and processed at a local facility.

Upcoming Sites:

9/19/2020, 8am-12pm:

  • 901 S. Bond Street with Fell’s Point Residents Association
  • 1801 Johnson Street with Riverside Neighborhood Association

9/26/2020, 8am-12pm:

  • Location TBD with Fell’s Prospect Community Association
  • 4113 Montana Ave with Waltherson Improvement Association

10/10/2020, 8am-12pm:

  • 100 South Chester Street with Butcher’s Hill Association

We would like to thank the East Rosemont Community Association, Brooklyn-Curtis Bay American Legion, Upper Fell’s Improvement Association and Fell’s Point Residents Association for their support of previous, successful recycling events. To date, we have kept nearly 10,000 gallons of recycling out of Baltimore’s waste stream.
