      DPW TO CONDUCT “MAKE-UP” HOUSEHOLD HAZARDOUS WASTE/E-CYCLING COLLECTION EVENT, SAT., MAY 3, 9 AM-3 PM, AT RFK STADIUM, LOT 7

       

      ( Washington , DC )  The DC Department of Public Works announced today that it will conduct an additional Household Hazardous Waste/E-cycling collection event, to accommodate District residents who did not get a chance to participate in last Saturday’s semi-annual event. 

       

      “Last week’s event attracted more than twice the number of people who came last year,” said DPW Director William O. Howland, Jr.  “Not everyone could stay until their turn to unload their toxic items and unwanted electronic goods, so we are offering this additional collection event to apologize to residents and express our appreciation for their commitment to protecting the environment.”

      WHAT:           Household Hazardous Waste/E-cycling Collection Event

       

      WHEN:           Saturday, May 3, 9 am to 3 pm, rain or shine
