The Anne Arundel County Department of Public Works last week announced an additional curbside collection provider to address curbside collection delays in portions of Glen Burnie, Pasadena, Severna Park, Gambrills, Odenton, Laurel, and Maryland City. The delays are primary yard waste-related and are associated with the labor shortage problems with the current contractor.
According to a County press release:
To implement the plan, the yard waste collection day for customers in these areas will be changed. Beginning the week of June 21, 2021, weekly collection of yard waste will occur on Wednesdays. This change will remain in effect until further notice. There are no plans to change the collection day for trash or recyclables.
