DPW Will Not Enforce Parking Regulations on Christmas Eve
The Department of Public Works announced today that while DC government will be closed Christmas Eve, Monday, December 24, trash, recycling and bulk collections will be made that day.
Trash, Recycling and Bulk Collections: For the weeks of December 24 and December 31, 2012, DPW will make its regular Monday trash and recycling collections and Tuesday’s collections will be suspended in both once-a-week and twice-a-week collection neighborhoods. Trash and recycling collections will resume Wednesday. In both once-a-week and twice-a-week neighborhoods, collections will slide one day. In once-a-week neighborhoods Tuesday’s collections will be made Wednesday and so on through Saturday when Friday’s collections will be made. In twice-a-week collection neighborhoods, Thursday’s collections will be made Friday and Tuesday/Friday collections will be made Wednesday and Saturday. Trash and recycling containers should be put out for collection no earlier than 6:30 pm the night before collection and removed from public space by 8 pm on the collection day. Appointments scheduled December 24 for bulk collections to be kept.
Leaf Collections: Between December 17 and 29, leaf collections will be made from most “Area B” neighborhoods, except December 24 and 25. In Ward 5, Area B is scheduled for collections to be made between December 26 and January 5. Residents can use DPW’s Web site – www.dpw.dc.gov – to view the 2012-2013 leaf collection schedule by selecting Leaf Collection and clicking on “Check Leaf Collection Status in Your Neighborhood” (http://leaf.dcgis.dc.gov/) and enter your address.
Holiday Tree Collections: Holiday trees and wreaths will be picked up curbside from December 31 to January 12. Remove all decorations and place the greenery in the treebox space in front of your home. Please do not put the trees in plastic or cloth bags. Trees collected between December 31 and January 12 will be recycled. Any trees not collected by January 12 should be set out with your trash to be picked up as space in the trash trucks allows over the following weeks.
Ft. Totten Transfer Station: Ft. Totten will be closed December 24 and 25. It reopens December 26.
Parking Enforcement: Since DC government will be closed Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, December 24 and 25, DPW will not enforce parking regulations either day. Normal enforcement activities will resume Wednesday, December 26.
