      DPW To Collect Trash/Recycling Starting at 6 AM, Thurs/Fri., Aug. 2 & 3 Due To High Temperatures

       

      The DC Department of Public Works announced today that its residential trash and recycling crews will begin their collections an hour earlier, at 6 am, Thursday and Friday, August 2 and 3, due to predicted 90° and above temperatures and the effect of the 90° plus heat index.  Residents may put their trash and recyclables out for pick-up starting at 6:30 pm on the day before their collections to make sure these materials are collected.  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.
