      DPW Announces First Thursday Of The Month HHW and E-Cycling Drop-Off For Residents Who Cannot Come On Saturdays Due To Religious Beliefs

       

      The DC Department of Public Works announced today that it will begin accepting household hazardous waste and e-cyclables on the first Thursday of the month, starting August 4, to accommodate residents whose religious beliefs prevent them from bringing these items to the regularly scheduled drop-off that is held on the first Saturday of the month at the Ft. Totten Transfer Station.  Ft. Totten will be open between 1 pm and 7 pm on the first Thursday of the month to receive items such as oil-based paint, batteries, computers, and other electronic and toxic items.  DPW will, however, accept materials on Thursday, September 29, in advance of the October 1 regularly scheduled Saturday drop-off. 

       

      DPW is accommodating residents on the first Thursday of the month so they can follow their religious beliefs.  There is very limited capacity to receive these items outside of the monthly Saturday drop-off event; therefore, residents are asked to bring their household hazardous waste and e-cyclables to the Saturday drop-off.  While DPW normally offers shredding of personal documents on the first Saturday, they cannot accept items for shredding on Thursdays because they cannot protect these documents until the shredding contractor arrives on the first Saturday.

       

                    Ft. Totten Schedule:

       

      ·         Weekdays (except holidays), 1 pm to 5 pm, to receive residents’ bulk items, recyclables and trash.

      ·         Saturdays (except holidays), 8 am to 3 pm, to receive bulk items, recyclables and trash.

      ·         First Thursday of the month (except holidays), starting August 4, 1 pm to 7 pm. to receive household hazardous waste and e-cyclables.  (October’s Thursday drop-off will be held on September 29.)

      ·         First Saturday of the month (except holidays), 8 am to 3 pm, to receive all the items identified in the schedule, as well as personal documents (no more than five boxes) to be shredded.

       

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