The DC Department of Public Works will observe Independence Day, Monday, July 5, 2010. Here’s how DPW services will be affected:
Trash and recycling collections will “slide” one day so Monday’s collections will be made Tuesday, Tuesday’s collections will be made Wednesday, and so on. In twice-a-week neighborhoods, Monday’s and Thursday’s collections will be made Tuesday and Friday, and Tuesday’s and Friday’s collections will be made Wednesday and Saturday. Trash and recycling containers should be placed out for collection no earlier than 6:30 pm the night before collection and removed from public space by 8 pm on the day(s) of collection.
Parking enforcement will be suspended for parking meters, residential parking, and rush hour lane restrictions. It also will suspend towing of abandoned vehicles. Enforcement will occur, however, in the neighborhood surrounding Nationals Park during all Nationals games July 2, 3 and 4.
Other services suspended for the observance of Independence Day include scheduled street and alley cleaning and nuisance abatement. All services will resume Tuesday, July 6, 2010.
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.
