BALTIMORE — DPW trash pickup is back to full force.

While that's good news going forward, it doesn't help those who still have bags of garbage stinking up their yard.

Members of 'Wheelabrator Baltimore' along with several community partners have three different trash collection sites in the city, where people can dump their garbage and go.

One of those sites is Maree G. Farring Elementary in South Baltimore. Drop-offs were on Thursday only, from 8am-1pm.

Those in charge, explained to WMAR-2 News about why this collection is so important.

“You'll have the odor in the street, you'll have rats. So, we have an opportunity to do something now, you know we can go ahead and recycle, we can go ahead and dispose of this waste before DPW gets back on the street and before we have a big mess on our hands."

Recycling and trash will be separated when you drop off your trash.

Anything that can't be recycled will be fed into the Wheelabrator Incinerator and turned into energy.
