Mayor Brandon Scott announced Baltimore City recycling curbside pickup services will resume next Tuesday, ending a six-month suspension first enacted due to COVID-19 outbreaks among crews that led to a shortage of workers.
“The right cleaning protocols are in place, training is in place and adequate equipment to safely distance to keep our workforce healthy and safe,” the Democrat said. “We are prepared as a city government to provide high levels of service to our residents.”
Scott also said the city is partnering with workforce development agencies that tap hard-to-employ people, such as those returning from federal or state correctional facilities, to staff crews.
