Municipal Trash Can Program

DPW is planning the roll-out of the new Municipal Trash Cans (MPT) and two deadlines are quickly approaching: 1) the deadline to opt-out of receiving an MTC is Wednesday, 02/17; and 2) the deadline to request a smaller sized MTC is Friday, 02/19. More information on each deadline is below. While I have requested that the DPW Director extend both deadlines and provide further outreach to the community, there is no guarantee that DPW will accommodate your request if it is submitted late, so please be prepared to make a decision prior to the deadlines listed below.
DEADLINE TO REQUEST A SMALLER SIZED MTC – FRIDAY, 02/19 – you may request a smaller sized MTC by calling 311.
By default, all properties will receive the 65-gallon MTC. However, property owners may request the 35-gallon MTC, in instances in which the property: 1) is a row home that is part of a block-long group; 2) has front trash collection; and 3) has no exterior storage space. Measurements for the cans are:
• 65-gallon – 25.9” (width) x 26.5” (depth) x 42.2” (height); and
• 35-gallon – 22.8” (width) x 22.3” (depth) x 38.2” (height).
• More info on each size of MTC is available on the DPW fact sheet here: http://publicworks.baltimorecity.gov/…/MTC%20Fact%20Sheet_u…
DEADLINE TO OPT-OUT – WEDNESDAY, 02/17 – you may opt-out of receiving an MTC by submitting the opt-out form. You may email it to: publicworks@baltimorecity.gov or drop it off at 200 Holliday Street, Suite 600, Baltimore, Maryland 21202. The form is available here: http://publicworks.baltimorecity.gov/…/Fillable%20MTC%20Ref…
If you are not eligible for the smaller sized MTC or if it is still too large for your needs, you may consider opting-out altogether. DPW will not restrict trash pick-up to only those using the MTC, meaning DPW will continue to pick-up your trash in your old can.
AS MENTIONED ABOVE, WHILE I HAVE REQUESTED THAT THE DPW DIRECTOR EXTEND BOTH DEADLINES AND PROVIDE FURTHER OUTREACH TO THE COMMUNITY, THERE IS NO GUARANTEE THAT DPW WILL ACCOMMODATE YOUR REQUEST IF IT IS SUBMITTED LATE, SO PLEASE BE PREPARED TO MAKE A DECISION PRIOR TO THE DEADLINES LISTED BELOW.

Learn about CHAP!

What Does It Mean to Become A Historically Designated District? What is CHAP and How Does It Impact You as a Property Owner?

FHNA will host representatives at our general meeting on February 16th to discuss the CHAP process and its implications. CHAP is the key item on the agenda, and we will allow as much time as we need to get all your questions answered.

For those members who can’t make the 3rd Tuesday meeting, we are hosting the same group of experts at our February 10th board meeting. CHAP will again be the key topic, and we will devote all the time we need to ensure accurate information is disseminated. If you can’t make the meeting on the 16th, please join us for the board meeting. All Federal Hill Residents are invited!
