The D.C. Department of Public Works (DPW) will resume trash and recycling pickup service and operate on an “altered” schedule through Sunday.

The department originally suspended trash pickup due to last weekend’s snowstorm.

“Normal” trash collection is scheduled to resume next Monday, Feb. 1.

The altered trash collection schedule, from DPW:

Thursday: Service attempts will be made.

Friday: Service attempts will be made.

Saturday and Sunday: Possible service attempts on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday routes.

Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday: Regular service will resume.

The DC Department of Public Works will be observing Memorial Day this Monday, May 27. Practically speaking, this means that trash and recycling collections, street and alley cleanings, and parking enforcement will be suspended until Tuesday, May 28. The one exception, for all you sports fans, is that parking enforcement will still be in effect in the Nationals Stadium neighborhood.

Trash, Recycling Collection

Trash and recycling collections in once-a-week collection neighborhoods will “slide” to the next day for the remainder of the week. In neighborhoods with twice-weekly trash collections, Monday and Thursday collections will be made Tuesday and Friday, and Tuesday and Friday collections will be made Wednesday and Saturday.

Parking Enforcement

Parking regulations will be enforced in the Nationals Stadium neighborhood. Elsewhere, DPW will suspend enforcement of expired meters, residential parking and rush hour lane restrictions. Also, booting, towing and abandoned vehicle removal will be suspended. Enforcement resumes Tuesday, May 28.

Wow. First of I have heard of this new device: the sweepercam. Got an email from DC Department of Public Works regarding the resumption of street sweeping on March 23 (for which I am extremely grateful… our streets are gross in the winter). Starting March 7, DPW will test cameras mounted on its city streetsweepers, which will take photos of cars that are illegally parked on streetsweeping day. The new cameras will be used to help DPW and MPD ticket and tow cars that have not been moved on the appropriate day.

Note to the City Council and Mayor: Now, if you would only worry as much about violent crime on the streets as you do trash…

Here’s the memo:
