Small commercial trash haulers will be able to register for a free 90-day permit to drop off their trash at waste collection sites as part of a pilot program aimed at reducing illegal dumping in Baltimore City.

The initiative is part of Mayor Bernard C. “Jack” Young’s “Clean It Up!” campaign, which he launched in January to reduce “crime and grime” in Baltimore. 

“I’m very excited for this latest piece of the ‘Clean It Up!’ campaign because this is all about new and innovative ways to get residents to help make Baltimore cleaner and safer,” Young said in a press conference Wednesday.
