Thursday Sep 30th, 2021
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
BALTIMORE, MD (Thursday, September 30, 2021) – Today, Mayor Brandon M. Scott announced details for his annual Fall Cleanup: Clean Where You Live event. Residents are encouraged to join Mayor Scott and Baltimore City Department of Public Works (DPW) Director Jason W. Mitchell on Saturday, October 23, 2021, to participate in the Mayor’s Fall Cleanup by putting on a mask and picking up a broom to clean up loose litter around their properties, alleyways, and curbsides.
“While we work everyday to clean up the streets of Baltimore, this annual tradition is about teamwork and community commitment to make a long lasting impact on our city,” said Mayor Brandon M. Scott. “I encourage every single one of our community associations, every block, and all of our neighbors to participate. Together, we can keep Baltimore City clean.”
Fall Cleanup participants who register their cleaning activities can receive bags to support their efforts. DPW will provide up to five bags per individual and/or service request to support local cleaning activities. To register, residents can call 311, visit balt311.baltimorecity.gov, or sign up using the BALT311 mobile app.
Registered bags will be available for pickup at DPW’s Sanitation Yards located at 111 Kane Street from 9:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. and at 2840 Sisson Street from 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m beginning today through October 22, 2021, or until supplies last. Residents must provide the Service Request Number they received when registering prior to pickup.
Collected trash and debris must be bagged and placed for pickup with weekly scheduled trash collections. Residents can also bring bagged trash to DPW’s Drop-off Centers. Participants who dispose of collected debris at the DPW Drop-off Centers must follow the centers’ guidelines, which do not allow commercial vehicles.
Residents are encouraged to note that DPW will NOT collect bulk trash items, and roll-off dumpsters will not be distributed as part of this year’s Fall Cleanup due to modifications following the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Stormwater credit applications will also not be distributed.
Due to the ongoing impact of COVID-19, the Mayor encourages residents to practice physical distancing and wear masks during cleaning activities.
