Curbside Bulk Collection is currently provided to Baltimore City residents at no additional charge. The service will remain FREE through June 30, 2012. A fee for service WILL NOT be instituted on January 1, 2012.
Budget challenges continue to drive the evaluation of all services for efficiency. Bulk Collection is being reviewed and a fee for this premium service is being considered. A fee will not be implemented before July 1, 2012. City residents will be given advance notice of any changes to service.
To schedule bulk collection, residents must call 311 at least three days in advance of their communities’ regular bulk collection day, and place no more than three items for pick up.
