The DC Department of Public Works is observing the Labor Day holiday on Monday, September 3 As a result, there will be no trash and recycling collections. Parking regulations will not be enforced either.

In once-a-week collection neighborhoods, collections will “slide” to the next day. In twice-a-week collection neighborhoods, Monday and Thursday collections will be made Tuesday and Friday, and Tuesday and Friday collections will be made Wednesday and Saturday.

Trash and recycling containers should be put out for collection no earlier than 6:30 pm the night before collection and removed from public space by 8 pm on collection day.

Sanitation services will be suspended for the holiday and will resume Tuesday, September 4.

  • In once-a-week trash and recycling collection neighborhoods collections will “slide” to the next day, so Monday’s collections will be made Tuesday, Tuesday’s collections will be made Wednesday and so on.
  • In twice-a-week collection neighborhoods, Monday/Thursday collections will be made Tuesday and Friday and Tuesday/Friday collections will be made Wednesday and Saturday.
  • Street sweeping will be suspended Monday, September 3, so motorists will not need to move their cars that day.

However, the Washington Nationals will play home games at Nationals Park beginning August 31, through September 9, and parking regulations in that neighborhood will be enforced daily, including on September 3.  Vehicles violating these restrictions will be ticketed and towed. Other parking regulations, including expired meters, residential parking and street sweeping, will be suspended for the holiday.
