BALTIMORE (WJZ) – Roadside recycling will resume Tuesday in Baltimore.
Operations began at 6:30 am and were greeted by Mayor Brandon Scott.
Roadside recycling ceased on August 31 when the city's public works department struggled to keep up with the city's roadside garbage collection when the COVID-19 pandemic hit their department.
Since then, the city has been running collection points that will stay open until February 27, but opening times are changing – they only open two days a week: Wednesdays and Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.
The roadside recycling collections resume today. DPW crews started collecting at 6:30 a.m. this morning when they were greeted by Mayor Scott
