As residents continue to clean up in the wake of Friday night's severe storms, Baltimore County announced Monday that it is providing access to large trash receptacles for tree debris collection at select fire stations, and will allow residents to fill containers with water from fire stations as well.
"We understand that this unexpected storm has created major disruptions all around the county," said County Executive Kevin Kamenetz said. "Our crews have been working around the clock since Friday night and we are making extra resources available to help residents who have yard waste from trees and who are without water."
Residents are invited to bring containers to all Baltimore County career and volunteer fire stations to fill with water from the station's outdoor spigots.
The Department of Public Works will place large trash containers at designated fire stations in hardest-hit areas so that residents may dispose of storm related tree debris. Receptacles will be located at the following stations beginning at 9 a.m. Tuesday, July 3:
• Arbutus Volunteer Fire Station, 5200 Southwestern Blvd.
• Bowleys Quarters Volunteer Fire Station, 900 Bowleys Quarters Road.
• Eastview Fire Station, 1056 Old Northpoint Road, Dundalk.
• Lutherville Volunteer Fire Station, 1609 Bellona Ave.

• Pikesville Volunteer Fire Station, 40 E. Sudbrook Road.
• Randallstown Fire Station, 10010 Liberty Road.
• Westview Fire Station, 6300 Johnnycake Road.
Only storm-related tree debris will be accepted at these sites.
Receptacles will be available to the public throughout the holiday weekend, including on the Fourth of July holiday.
In addition to the temporary receptacles at designated fire stations, residents may deliver other debris to the county's drop-off centers. These facilities are closed on Wednesday for the Fourth of July holiday:
