Several city services will be affected by a mandatory furlough day for Baltimore employees and the upcoming Christmas holiday.
All city buildings, except police headquarters, will be closed on Friday, Dec. 23 because of a furlough day. Residents will not be able to pay bills or obtain permits in person though some services will be available online.
Trash and recycling will be collected according to the normal schedule but there will not be bulk trash collection. Parking meters will be in effect.
On the day after Christmas, Monday, Dec. 26, parking meters will be in effect but there will be no bulk trash collection.
The city collects wrapping, tissue and colored paper for recycling, as well as cardboard packaging, holiday cards and envelopes. The city does not recycle ribbons or foil. Styrofoam, which should be put in a clear plastic bag, can only be recycled at the Northwest Citizens Convenience Center, 2840 Sisson Street.
In addition to the Northwest Citizens Convenience Center, electronics can be recycled at one of the following centers: Quarantine Road Sanitary Landfill, 6100 Quarantine Road; Northwest Transfer Station, 5030 Reisterstown Road; Western Sanitation Yard, 701 Reedbird Ave.; and the Eastern Sanitation Yard, 6101 Bowleys Lane.
