DPW to Observe Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 22
Trash/Recycling Not Collected; Parking Enforcement Suspended
Leaves will be collected as scheduled from Area B neighborhoods.
The Department of Public Works announced today how services will be affected in observance of Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, November 22.
Trash and Recycling Collections: There will be no trash and recycling collections. These collections will “slide” to the next day. Thursday’s collections will be made Friday, and Friday’s collections will be made Saturday. This applies to both once-a-week and twice-a-week collection neighborhoods. 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 the collection day.
Parking Enforcement: Parking meter regulations will not be in enforced. Residential parking and rush hour lane restrictions will not be enforced. Also, DPW will not tow abandoned vehicles. Parking enforcement will resume Friday, November 23.
Ft. Totten: The Ft. Totten Transfer Station, located at 4900 John F. McCormack Drive, NE, will be closed Thursday, November 22. It will be open Friday, November 23, 1 pm to 5 pm, for residents to bring bulk trash. Residents also may bring bulk trash only on Saturday, 8 am to 3 pm. 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 Drive, NE and continue to the end of the street.
Leaf Collections: Leaf collections will be made from “Area B” neighborhoods between Monday, November 19, and Saturday, December 1 (including Thanksgiving Day). DPW is following the collection schedule published in the leaf collection brochure mailed to households that receive DPW trash/recycling collections. Area B residents should rake their leaves into their treebox by Sunday, November 18 to ensure their leaves are ready when the crews come to collect between November 19 and December 1.
