Cape Clean-Up Time!

OK Capers, I know one thing this community has in spades is JUNK, and I include myself in that assessment!  This Friday and Saturday, September 24th and 25th, is your chance to lighten the burden of crud in your life by taking it all down to the corner of Broadview and Cape St. Claire Rd. to dispose of at this year's Cape Clean-Up.  The County is sending dumpsters ready to accept all (well most) of the large and small-scale debris that is cluttering your world.  This is a terrific service provided by the Cape and the County for Cape St. Claire residents, and I highly recommend taking advantage of it!

Things should be cranked up by 11 AM on Friday, and they will accept trash until 4:30 PM unless the dumpsters fill up.  On Saturday the hours will be from 7:30 AM until 2 PM, again, assuming they don't run out of space.  Your recyclable trash will have to be separated, if not before you get there, then before it can be left.  There will be County personnel there to help if there are any questions.  Here is a list of items NOT accepted:

Junk Automobiles
Gas and Propone Tanks
Tree Trunks
Oil Drums or Tanks
Hazardous Waste
Air Conditioners

And if you don't want to even be hassled with taking your trash the mile down the road yourself, you can call the Boy Scouts to come haul it for you! The Scouts of Troop 783 are at your disposal (no pun intended) both days of the Clean-Up.  For a donation of $40 for each truck load  (which must be easily accessible or at your curbside) they will come to your house and take it all away.  Let them know if you need assistance to prepare for your pick up.  For more information or to schedule a pick up, call Jim Lanoue at 410-349-9015 (between 8 am and 8 pm please) or email him at

It does not get any easier than this to lighten your load.  Take advantage of it Capers!  I do not want any of you showing up on Hoarders or Hoarding:  Buried Alive...
