The Camp Small Zero Waste Initiative

Camp Small is the wood waste collection yard run by the Baltimore City Department of Recreation and Parks. The 5 acre site is located in the Jones Falls Valley just north of Cold Spring Lane. Every day, City crews and contractors bring logs, chips, and brush to the site for processing.  In early 2016, the Rec & Parks Forestry Division, in collaboration with the Baltimore Office of Sustainability, began the Camp Small Zero Waste initiative in an effort to sort and distribute the variety of wood products at the site.

Now, Baltimore City residents and businesses can purchase the following wood products right from Camp Small. Anyone interested in doing this should contact Shaun Preston, Camp Small Yard Master at shaun.preston@baltimorecity.gov or at 443-934-4128.
**Delivery of the following products is not available at this time.  All purchasers must haul their own material.
