- All recyclables—paper, cardboard, glass bottles, plastic bottles and jars (with 1 – 7 on the bottom), metal, aluminum, and tin cans—will go into one container, on the same day.
- Plastic bags will no longer be acceptable for recyclables.
- Recycling will no longer be collected on Mondays. Your current paper recycling collection day will become your new single stream recycling collection day.
- Single stream recycling will be collected on the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays through Fridays; depending on your recycling zone.
- You have 3 options for setting out single stream recycling: (1) purchase and use a recycling bin; (2) use a container of choice that is clearly marked as recycling material; (3) or use a cardboard box.

But remember, you don't have to use this bin, as long as your container "is clearly marked as recycling material." So, a cardboard box and a sharpie, works just fine, too. You can find out more about the Single Stream Recycling initiative at Cleaner Greener Baltimore.
