Neighborhood Recycling Partnership – Make A Difference

Household recycling is an important component in creating a cleaner and greener City. Mayor Dixon and the Department of Public Works (DPW) want to double household recycling participation over the next four years. We need your help to achieve this goal. The DPW Recycling Office is seeking block captains in communities across the City to communicate and motivate 100% household recycling - block by block.

If you are interested in helping your neighbors understand the benefits of recycling and in encouraging them to participate, please contact us at 410-396-4511 for more information. Distribution literature will be provided to each registered block captain. Someone from the Recycling Office will make initial and periodic contact with you to ensure progress, supply literature and help with any questions or concerns.

One Bin Same Day
Baltimore is now Single Stream Recycling – All items collected in one container.

Recycling is an important part of our effort to build a cleaner, greener Baltimore. Now it is easier than ever with SINGLE STREAM RECYCLING. Instead of separating your bottles, cans, jars, and paper, you can now place all these items in one container for collection. DPW has also added more varieties of plastics which we will accept. Plastic bottles and jars with 1 - 7 on the bottom, instead of just 1 - 2 , will now be collected.

Times have changed. Much of what we used to throw away must be re-used to preserve dwindling resources, to conserve landfill space and to reduce pollution and global warming. Resource recovery also saves money and creates jobs. Many products we all use each day are made from recycled paper, aluminum, steel, glass and plastic. Purchasing products made from recycled materials is not only good for the environment but also good for the economy. Please recycle. Recycling materials should be set out in the same location as you place your trash for pick up.
Recycling is good for you, good for Baltimore and good for the environment!
