When Will Baltimore County Trash Be Collected after Ice Storm?

Baltimore County provided an update on its work, curbside collection services.

Crews from Baltimore County were clearing debris and addressing road closures as quickly as possible after the ice storm but trash collection may be delayed, officials said.

"Due to inclement weather, trash and recycling collections will occur when and where conditions permit," Baltimore County officials said Thursday.

Approximately 100 trees fell in roads across the county on Wednesday during a bout of freezing rain and ice.

"Please leave materials out until collection occurs," the county advised.

More than 16,000 BGE customers were without power in Baltimore County Thursday at 4 p.m. The utility company was tackling a mass of outages statewide, and Baltimore County reported it was working to clear roads of debris.

The county reported that all drop-off centers would be open for regular hours, including the Eastern Sanitary Landfill in White Marsh.

Baltimore County (BC) say, "Please leave your trash and recyclabl3es out until it's collected." However, if we DO leave it out the squirrels and other creatur4es that live around us will get into the trash and spread it everywhere. BC will not allow us to secure the tops of our trash or use heavier trash cans and will not clean up the trash if we DO leave it out. So perhaps they will tell us how they expect us to cope with this problem?

The next story should focus on the actual act of picking up the trash. I think there are a number of problems with Baltimore County trash pick up. How many people have had their trash cans broken this year? Could it be that the contractors throw the trash cans instead of placing them on the ground. What about the amount of trash that is left behind in the trash cans or left in the street? Follow a trash truck around for 5 minutes - an eye opening experience. Yesterday on Timonium Rd, it appeared that they were practicing for the next summer olympics as discus throwers.
