Here’s the weekend holiday schedule in DC for trash/recycling collection and for parking enforcement:

  • Trash: The Department of Public Works (DPW) will pick up trash and recyclables tomorrow, Friday, December 31.
  • Parking: Regular parking enforcement will be suspended on December 31-January 1. You won’t have to feed the meters or move your car from rush-hour lanes. Also, DPW will not tow abandoned vehicles.

Christmas Tree Collection Starts January 3

DPW will collect holiday trees (please remove ornaments, lights, tinsel, etc.) between Monday, January 3, and Saturday, January 15. Place your trees in the treebox space in front of your home, or adjacent to the curb (but not in the street).

Please put your tree out for collection between Sunday, January 2, and Sunday, January 9. After January 15, you may put your tree where you put your trash and recycling and we will collect it from there, depending on the truck’s capacity.

  1. My roommates and I usually wait until February and then throw the Christmas tree in the woods behind our building … Maybe I shouldn’t admit that?

  2. Probably not! But we found it highly amusing and thank you for sharing!
