Good Morning Community Members,

 

Please join us for a meeting that will focus on gathering ideas to develop a vision for our County over the next 10 years. One important focus of Master Plan 2030 is ensuring that all residents have access to high-quality affordable and accessible housing, cultural, and recreational opportunities in safe communities while promoting responsible economic development.

 

This meeting will focus on identifying and prioritizing important aspects of your community’s character to preserve, enhance, transform, or strengthen in Master Plan 2030. In preparation for the meeting, please ponder the following six questions:

 

1.  What do you value about your community that you do not want to see changed?

2.  What changes would you most like to see in your community in the future?

3.  What are the most important issues facing your community over the next 10 years?

4.  What do you want your community to be like in 10 years?

5.  Looking beyond your community, what is the County’s biggest challenge in the next 10 years?

6.  What is the County’s biggest opportunity?

 

Security Woodlawn Areas will be the focus of discussion for this meeting!

Motor Vehicle Theft and Safety Prevention


The purpose of this alert is to provide some suggestions that can reduce your chance of becoming a victim of this type of crime.  There are many ways to keep you and your vehicle safe.  These are just a few suggestions:
 

  •  Never leave your keys in your vehicle.  If a thief steals your vehicle with the keys inside, they may have the keys to your home, as well as another vehicle.

  • Never leave valuables or any packages visible in your vehicle.

  • Park in busy, well lit areas of the parking lot.

  • Copy your license plate and vehicle information (VIN) numbers on a card and keep them with you.  If your vehicle is stolen, the police will need this information to take a report.

  • If you have a garage, use it.  When parked in a garage, lock the garage as well as your vehicle, and take your keys inside.

 

  • Never leave your vehicle running while parked inside of a garage to warm up.  This could be dangerous due to the carbon monoxide that builds as the car idles in an enclosed space.

 

  • Never leave your vehicle running unattended. Vehicles are commonly stolen at ATMs, convenience stores, and gas stations etc. Many vehicles are also stolen on cold mornings when the owner leaves the vehicle running to warm it up.

  • Traffic Article 21-1101(A) states that it is unlawful to leave an unattended vehicle w/o stopping the engine, locking the ignition, removing the key and setting the brake.  Fine is $70 and a 1 point violation.

As always, call 9-1-1 if you see anyone attempting to break into a vehicle.  Do not intervene, contact 9-1-1 immediately.  Provide as much information about the suspect as possible to help the police.   Any questions or concerns should be directed to the Baltimore County Police Department Community Resources Team @ 410-887-5901 or the Woodlawn Community Outreach Team at
410-887-4714.

Baltimore County Trash and Recycling Guidelines

Collection Set-Out Guide

 

To ensure collection of your materials, make sure you follow trashsingle stream recycling and yard materials regulations. In all cases, please place the material at its designated curbside or alley collection point after 6 p.m. on the night before scheduled collection.

Trash

Trash containers:
 

  1. Must not have a maximum filled weight of more than 40 pounds
     

  2. Must not have a maximum capacity of more than 34 gallons
     

  3. Must not have a lid fastened to the can with rope, wire, chains, etc.
     

  4. Containers should be sturdy, water-tight and rodent-resistant, with handles and a tight-fitting cover (as long as that cover is not fastened to the container). Cans with hinged lids or wheels are not recommended, due to difficulty in handling by collectors and the lids or wheels being prone to breakage.

Having problems with lost container lids? Try a Lid Leash! Using a piece of rope or small chain, attach the lid to a fence or post (see illustration). This helps to prevent lost lids due to wind, traffic, etc. Do not tie the lid to the container.

Single Stream Recycling

 

Plastic Bags of any type or color must not be used to set out recyclables for collection - these bags jam machinery at the single stream sorting facility. Even if plastic bags are marketed as "recycling bags," "recyclable," or "compostable," they are not acceptable containers for recycling in Baltimore County.
 

Recycling containers can include any of the following:
 

  • Recycling bins (usually colored blue or marked with a recycling symbol)

    • Must not have a maximum filled weight of more than 40 pounds

    • Must not have a maximum capacity of more than 34 gallons
       

  • Trash containers used only for recycling (marked with a large "X" or the word "RECYCLE"; free "RECYCLE" stickers can be obtained by calling 410-887-2000)

    • Must not have a maximum filled weight of more than 40 pounds

    • Must not have a maximum capacity of more than 34 gallons
       

  • Small cardboard boxes

    • Must not have a maximum filled weight of more than 30 pounds

    • Boxes will be collected along with their contents
       

  • Paper bags, or bundles tied with non-plastic string

    • Must not have a maximum filled weight of more than 30 pounds

    • Should only be used for setting out paper or cardboard recyclables
       

If a container has a lid, the lid must not be fastened to the container with rope, wire, chains, etc. Containers with hinged lids or wheels are not recommended because they are difficult to handle by collectors and the lids or wheels are prone to breakage.
