Brooklyn Park ready for recycling

Curbside recycling comes to Brooklyn Park this week, said county officials, who are delivering yellow bins and program guidelines to some 6,900 residents.

Residents can fill the bins with newspaper, corrugated cardboard, glass jars or bottles, plastic bottles and aluminum or tin cans for recycling.

But they must put the bins at their front curbs rather than in the alleys, said Carol Taylor, recycling projects specialist. The recycling trucks don't fit in the alleyways, she said.

Weekly recycling pickup will be Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday, depending on the area.

With the addition of the homes in Brooklyn Park, 95,000 county households will have access to curbside recycling.

The remaining areas -- South County, Maryland City and part of Severn -- will get the service by the end of January, Ms. Taylor said.

The county does not offer curbside recycling to apartment dwellers or residents of some farmlands or those who live on private roads.

Bank workers robbed while servicing ATM

A masked gunman robbed two employees of a Brooklyn Park bank as they were servicing an automated teller machine early Monday.

Detectives said the employees were taking deposits from the machine outside Household Bank in the 5400 block of Ritchie Highway at 8:50 a.m. when the gunman walked up and told them to throw the money over their shoulders and go back into the bank.

The gunman ran toward an alley with the money.

A police dog tracked him to Morgan Avenue, but lost him.

Police described the gunman as a white man about 6 feet tall, weighing 180 pounds and wearing a hooded sweat shirt and stocking mask.
