      DPW To Observe Columbus Day, Mon., Oct. 8

      DPW Parking Enforcement And Sanitation Services Will Be Suspended For The Day


      The DC Department of Public Works will observe Columbus Day, Monday, October 8, and most services will be suspended.  Other parking regulations, including expired meters, residential parking and street sweeping, will be suspended for the holiday.  The 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.


      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 Ft. Totten Transfer Station will be closed Monday, October 8 and will reopen Tuesday, October 9 to residents to bring trash, bulk items and recyclables between 1 pm and 5 pm. 


      Directions to Ft. Totten, 4900 John F. McCormack Drive, NE: 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.
