BALTIMORE — Baltimore City Department of Public Works announced that some residents may experience a delay in trash and recycling collections as DPW makes staffing modifications.

“I want residents to know that your trash and recycling will be collected. Our crews may not be able to arrive during the times that you are use to seeing them, but they will be there,” Acting Director Matthew Garbark said.

DPW’s Bureau of Solid Waste has experienced fluctuations in staffing levels and has had to make adjustments to respond to COVID-19.

In addition, hiring and retaining drivers with commercial driver’s licenses (CDL) have been ongoing challenges for the Bureau.

DPW encourages individuals with CDL (Class A/B) licenses or anyone interested in working for the Bureau of Solid Waste to visit their website to learn more about the Department’s employment opportunities.
