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.
