Upcoming Community Dumpster Day: Saturday, May 6th. Location: Chestnut Hill & Monterey Rd

PLEASE NOTE: The City of Baltimore is unable to set an arrival time for the dumpsters. All we know is that our community is to expect a dumpster on the dates and at the location listed for a 4 hour time frame OR when the dumpster becomes full.

  • Dumping items before a dumpster arrives is not permitted and could result in an illegal dumping fine.

  • Dumping items once the dumpster is full is not permitted and could result in an illegal dumping fine.

  • Should illegal dumping occur, the Civic Association reserves the decision to cancel future community dumpster dates.

Please remember, the city has citizen drop-off centers where you can take trash and items you are looking to get rid of beyond our scheduled dumpster dates.

The closest citizen drop-off center is the Sisson Street Center located at 2840 Sisson St and is open Monday - Saturday 9am - 5pm. Learn more about the drop-off centers:


Special thanks to our Councilwoman Odette Ramos for sharing the following news in her email newsletter. We are grateful for the work she and housing advocates are doing to change tax sale policy at the city and state level.

Some 41,000 properties have gone through the city’s tax sale since 2016, a Baltimore Banner investigation found, threatening home ownership and prolonging vacancies in majority-Black neighborhoods.
