BALTIMORE — The Department of Public Works says trash and recycling collections will be canceled on Friday, February 19, due to icy alleys and roadways.

“The City’s alleyways remain quite slick and any melting will likely refreeze overnight. These conditions make collection of trash and recyclables dangerously difficult for sanitation workers,” said Acting Director Garbark.

DPW is continuing to monitor weather conditions and will announce make-up days for the Thursday and Friday cancellations.

Due to the inclement weather, the following DPW facilities will be CLOSED on Friday, February 19:

  • Northwest Citizens' Convenience Center, 2840 Sisson Street
  • Southwestern Citizens’ Convenience Center, 701 Reedbird Avenue
  • Eastern Citizens’ Convenience Center, 6101 Bowleys Lane

The following DPW facilities will remain OPEN:

  • The Northwest Transfer Station, 5030 Reisterstown Road
  • Quarantine Road Landfill, 6100 Quarantine Road.
