Subject: Reminder: DPW Observes Columbus Day, Monday, Oct. 12; Most DPW Services Suspended
Most DPW services will be affected in observance of Columbus Day on Monday, October 12, 2010.
Trash Collection: There will be no trash and recycling collections. 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. 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: Parking enforcement for meters, rush hour ticketing and towing, residential parking, abandoned vehicles towing, and booting will be suspended. Other violations – blocking a fire hydrant, crosswalk, bus stop, or driveway – will be enforced.
Household Hazardous/Electronic Waste & Shredding at Ft. Totten Trash Transfer Station Only:
Ft. Totten (4900 John McCormack Drive, NE) will be open Saturday, October 10, from 8 am to 3 pm for residents to bring their household hazardous waste, electronic waste and shredding but closed on Monday, October 12, in observance of the holiday. Ft. Totten will reopen Tuesday, October 13, at 1 pm for residents to bring their trash and bulk items.
