BALTIMORE — Baltimore City DPW cancels routine trash and recycling collection on Tuesday due to the winter weather.

Acting Director Matthew Garbark announced that DPW will cancel routine trash and recycling collections for Tuesday, February 2, due to the inclement weather and icy conditions of many alleys throughout Baltimore City as a result of the snow storm.

Tuesday’s collections will be made up on Saturday, February 6.

“Due to the inclement weather and unique infrastructure of our city, we have decided to cancel trash and recycling collections for February 2,” said Garbark. “Our top priority must always be the safety of our workers and with more severe weather and temperatures expected overnight we want to do our part and stay off the roads to help City crews get streets cleared so residents can get moving safely again.”

Garbark also announced limited openings of DPW’s Convenience Drop-Off Centers on Tuesday.
