Baltimore County has announced closures for the upcoming holidays.
District and Circuit courts, health department clinics, libraries, senior centers, landfills, drop-off centers and the county animal shelter will be closed on Christmas, Dec. 25., and New Year's Day, Jan. 1, 2013, according to a news release from the county. The CountyRide van will also not run on those days.
County residents who typically have their trash collected on Tuesday mornings should instead set it out at night on Christmas and New Year's Day—which are both on Tuesdays—for Wednesday collection, the release reads. Recyclabes should be held until the next scheduled collection or taken to drop-off centers.
Trash collection may also occur later during the last week of December and first week of January as a result of an increase in material. The county urges residents to leave material out until collection occurs.
There will also be no charge for metered parking or in county-operated parking garages on those days.
District and Circuit courts will also be closed on Christmas Eve, Dec. 24, and New Year's Eve, Dec. 31, according to the release. Libraries will be closed on Christmas Eve and close at 5:30 p.m. on New Year's Eve.
