Add one more inconvenience—albeit a minor one—to the list caused by the recent power outages.
Baltimore County officials say residents can expect continued delays this week in the collection of recyclable materials and yard waste.
The delays are blamed on the large amount of spoiled food and storm-related tree debris being set out for collection in the last week, according to a statement released by Charles Reighart, the county's recycling and waste prevention manager.
Residents who find their recyclable materials are not picked up on the regularly scheduled day are encouraged to leave the materials out until they are picked up.
County residents can also take their recyclable materials to any of three county drop-centers:
- White Marsh area - Eastern Sanitary Landfill Solid Waste Management Facility - 6259 Days Cover Road, off 11400 block of Pulaski Hwy. (Route 40 East), Mon. - Sat. 7:30 a.m. - 3:30 p.m.
- Cockeysville area - Baltimore County Resource Recovery Facility - Drop-Off Drive, off Warren Rd., one-quarter mile West of York Rd. and one-quarter East of Beaver Dam Rd., Mon. - Sat. 7:00 a.m. - 4: 00 p.m.
- Halethorpe area - Western Acceptance Facility - 3310 Transway Rd., off 4500 block of Hollins Ferry Rd., Mon. - Sat., 7:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
