Two more small recycling collection programs are set to begin in eastern Baltimore County.
Starting Friday, the county's private collector will pick up mixed paper from 1,300 homes in the Highpoint-Kenwood area on the last Friday of every month.
This collection includes newspapers, magazines, phone books, mail, writing paper and cardboard. Paper should be tied in bundles or placed in brown paper grocery bags. The area covered is inside the Baltimore Beltway and south of Interstate 95 along Golden Ring Road.
In Dundalk, about 900 homes will lose one day of regular trash collection beginning Aug. 10 so that grass and leaves can be collected each Monday instead. Mixed paper will be collected from these homes on the last Monday of each month. The area for this pilot program is bounded by Dundalk Avenue, Dunmanway, Sollers Point and Belclare roads.
Dundalk residents who collect plastic, glass and aluminum containers may still take them to the Dundalk drop-off point at the North Point Government Center at Merritt Boulevard and Wise Avenue.
A public meeting to discuss the new schedule is set for 7 p.m., Aug. 3 at the Dundalk United Methodist Church at Dunran and Mornington roads. For information, call 887-4370.
