"One Plus One" weekly trash collection will soon be here. In Federal Hill, every Wednesday will be Trash Day and every Friday will be Recycling Day. The sweeping changes apply to both residential and commercial areas that utilize city services. Everyone must use trash cans with tight-fitting lids or risk a $50 fine; enforcement is being stepped up. Cans can be placed out for pick-up at 6 pm the night before.
The changes will cut collection costs and help control rats, according to city officials.
