One of the biggest questions on Harford County residents’ minds at Christmastime is how does the garbage pick up schedule change and when can we put out all our holiday trash?
If your hauler is Harford Sanitation Services, here is their holiday schedule:
Delays are possible during after Christmas and New Years due to the increase in the volume of trash.
If your trash is handled by the Town of Bel Air, here is their holiday schedule:
COLLECTION DURING HOLIDAYS
If a Town holiday falls on a “recycling day”, the items will be picked up on that Saturday of the same week as indicated on the Calendar.
If a Town holiday falls on a “yard waste collection day”, the yard waste will be picked up on the next scheduled day of the following week.
If a Town holiday falls on a “regular trash day”, trash will be picked up on Wednesday and there will be NO Bulk pickup that week.
In the City of Aberdeen, the holiday schedule is:
In Zones 1, 2, 3 & 4, trash and recycling is moved one day later. No yard waste pick up.
In Havre de Grace:
ALL Collections shift by 1 day:
Monday pick-up moves to Tuesday,
Tuesday pick-up moves to Wednesday,
Wednesday pick-up moves to Thursday,
Thursday Recycles move to Friday,
Friday Yard Waste moves to Saturday.
And the Harford Waste Disposal Center will be closed Christmas Eve and Christmas day and will reopen on Tuesday, Dec. 27. Here’s the press release from the county:
