      DPW Collecting Spoiled Food At Selected Schools, Mon/Tues; Continues To Remove Storm Debris, Through July 7

      The DC Department of Public Works announced today that in addition to conducting its regular trash and recycling collections from residences with Monday or Tuesday collections, employees will be located at the following schools today and tomorrow (Mon/Tues), 3 pm to 7 pm, to collect spoiled food from residents who do not want to wait until their normal collection later in the week.

      • LaSalle - Backus Elementary -501 Riggs Road, NE
      • McKinley Tech – 151 T Street, NE
      • Key Elementary - 5001 Dana Place, NW
      • Wilson High School - 3950 Chesapeake Street, NW
      • Ferebee-Hope Elementary - 3999 8th Street, SE
      • Garfield Elementary - 2435 Alabama Avenue, SE

      Trucks will be positioned at each site to receive spoiled food only. Another option available to residents is bringing their spoiled food to the Ft. Totten Transfer Station, 4900 John F. McCormack, Road, NE, 1 pm-7 pm* Monday and Tuesday. Ft. Totten will be closed Wednesday, July 4 for the holiday and reopens Thursday.

      DPW will continue to remove storm debris from residential areas through Saturday, July 7. Residents are asked to do the following:

      1. If hiring a tree specialist or landscaping company to cut up fallen trees and limbs, please have your contractor remove all the debris, limbs and branches.

      2. From July 1-July 7 only, the Department of Public Works will remove from the treebox space(s) in front of residents’ homes, branches that are cut into 4’ lengths and tied into bundles no more than 2’ in diameter. These items can be placed where the residents’ trash is collected or they may bring them to the Ft. Totten Transfer Station, 4900 John F. McCormack Road, NE, weekdays (except July 4th, Independence Day) between 1 pm and 5 pm, or Saturday, July 7, between 8 am and 3 pm. Directions to Ft. Totten: 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.

      3. Please place debris, bagged or loose, in the treebox space, not the gutter or street so the gutters can remain clear and crews can run mechanical sweepers along the curb lanes and gutters. Also, DPW asks residents to resist putting the debris in the street to help prevent flooding in case of rain before the debris is collected. Do not include rocks, stones or concrete.


      *Ft. Totten’s normal hours are 1 pm – 5 pm; however, they are being extended until 7pm on Monday and Tuesday this week.

      2. From July 1-July 7 only, the Department of Public Works will remove from the treebox space(s) in front of residents’ homes branches that are cut into 4’ lengths and tied into bundles no more than 2’ in diameter. These items can ALSO be placed where the residents’ trash is collected or they may bring them to the Ft. Totten Transfer Station, 4900 John F.

Totten’s normal hours are 1 pm – 5 pm; however, they are being extended Monday and Tuesday this week because of the storm.
      3. Please place debris, bagged or loose, in the treebox space, not the gutter or street so the gutters can remain clear and crews can run mechanical sweepers along the curb lanes and gutters. Also, DPW asks residents to resist putting the debris in the street to help prevent flooding in case of rain before the debris is collected. Do not include rocks, stones or concrete.
