      Residential Trash/Recycling Starting at 6 AM, Wed., July 10


      The DC Department of Public Works announced today that its trash and recycling crews will begin their collections an hour earlier, at 6 am, Wednesday, July 10, due to a predicted 90° temperature.  Residents may put their trash and recyclables out for pick-up starting at 6 pm the day before their collections.  Trash and recycling containers should be removed from public space by 8 pm on the collection day.


      Throughout the summer, when the temperature and heat index are predicted to be 90˚ or higher or the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments announces unhealthy air quality (Code Orange or Code Red days), DPW collection crews will begin their work at 6 am to avoid health or environmental issues.
