The DC Department of Public Works is observing Columbus Day on Monday, October 8. As a result, there will be no trash and recycling collections. Parking regulations will not be enforced either. (Officially, Columbus Day is actually October 12.)
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, October 9.
- 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, October 8, so motorists will not need to move their cars that day.
The Washington Nationals’ Post-Season Schedule currently is tentative for October 8 and parking regulations around the stadium will be enforced in the event a game is announced.
