The DC Department of Public Works (DPW) will observe Veterans Day on Monday, November 12. Trash and recycling collections will be suspended for the day, and will resume on Tuesday, November 13. To make up for the missed day, DPW will work on a “sliding” schedule for the week — trash and recycling collections will “slide” to the next day for the remainder of the week.
Here is how it will work:
- Monday’s trash and recycling collections will be made on Tuesday and Tuesday’s collections will be made on Wednesday and so on in once-a-week collection neighborhoods.
- In neighborhoods with twice-weekly trash collections, Monday and Thursday collections will be made Tuesday and Friday. Collections normally made on Tuesday and Friday, will be made Wednesday and Saturday.
- Leaves will be collected as scheduled.
