DPW Collecting Spoiled Food At Four Sites; Removing Storm Debris
The DC Department of Public Works announced today that in addition to resuming its regular trash and recycling collections for the remainder of this week, employees will be located at the following sites between 3 pm and 7 pm, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, October 31-November 2 to collect spoiled food. Hurricane Sandy closed District government Monday and Tuesday; therefore, trash collections were not made those days so DPW is providing this additional service. Trucks will be positioned at each site to receive spoiled food only.
1. Fort Stevens Recreation Center
1327 Van Buren Street, NW
2. Wilson High School
3950 Chesapeake Street, NW
3. Trinidad Recreation Center
1310 Childress Street, NE
4. Kelly Miller Middle School
4900 Brooks Street, NE
DPW will continue to remove storm debris from residential areas through Friday, November 2. Leaf collection season begins Monday, November 5. 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. DPW 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 Drive, NE, weekdays between 1 pm and 5 pm, or Saturday, 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. Do not include rocks, stones or concrete.
* If you do not have a treebox, place the debris adjacent to the curb but NOT in the gutter or street.
