DPW To Observe Veterans Day, Mon., Nov. 12
Leaves Will Be Collected As Scheduled
The Department of Public Works announced today how services will be affected in observance of Veterans Day, Monday, November 12.
Trash and Recycling Collections: There will be no trash and recycling collections on Veterans Day. Trash and recycling collections will “slide” to the next day for the remainder of the week. For example, 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. 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: DPW will not enforce parking meters, residential parking, and rush hour lane violations. DPW also will not tow abandoned vehicles. Parking enforcement will resume Tuesday, November 13.
Ft. Totten: The Ft. Totten Transfer Station, located at 4900 John F. McCormack Drive, NE, will be closed Monday, November 12. It will reopen Tuesday at 1 pm for residents to bring bulk trash. The next Saturday Household Hazardous Waste/E-cycling/Document Shredding drop-off day is December 1, 8 am to 3 pm.
Directions to Ft. Totten: Travel east on Irving Street, NW, turn left on Michigan Avenue, turn left on John F. McCormack Road, NE and continue to the end of the street.
Leaf Collections: Between Monday, November 5 and Saturday, November 17 (including Veterans Day), DPW will collect leaves from “Area A” neighborhoods as designated in the leaf collection brochure mailed to households that receive DPW trash/recycling collections.
