Good news on the post-Snowpoalypse. The DC Department of Public Works has resume collection of recyclables as well as trash pick up from alleys. From DPW:

The DC Department of Public Works announced today that it is resuming alley collections for trash and recycling.  Last week, residents were asked to put their trash at the curb through today because the alleys were impassable.  However, the high temperatures over the weekend produced some melting, which will allow the collections to be made from the alleys once again. Collections are being made from both the curb and alley Mon., Feb. 22.

Normal collection schedule resumes this week. Residents are asked to put their trash and recycling containers at their point of collection between 6:30 pm the day before their collection and 6 am the day of their collection.

    What about all the graffiti that’s gone up over the past week? Any word on when that will be cleaned up? Does anyone know if its up to home/business owners to clean up or will the city help out?

    They did not pick up alley trash from the 1400 block of Corcoran yesterday. Things are getting pretty nasty back there!
