Baltimore City Health Code Section 7-221: Hours of Solid Waste Collection
No hauler or any other person may collect solid waste in the city between 11 P.M. and 7 A.M. In addition, no solid waste may be collected within 300 feet of a residential structure during this time, including weekends and legal holidays.
Do I Need a Waste Hauler License?
If you are a Baltimore City resident who occupies the residential property and collect, transports, or disposes of solid waste generated by the residential use of that property, you do not require a waste hauler license.
You will require a waste hauler license if you contract with others for the collection, transportation, or disposal of solid waste; or engage in the collection transportation or disposal of solid waste.
