      DPW announced today that its crews will begin trash and recycling collections one hour earlier, starting at 6 am, Wednesday through Friday this week, due to a forecast of 90° and above temperatures and unhealthy air quality. 

       

      Since collections were suspended Monday, July 5, when DPW observed Independence Day, trash and recycling will “slide” one day.  Monday’s collections will be made Tuesday, and so on.  In twice-a-week neighborhoods, Monday/Thursday collections will be made Tuesday and Friday, while Tuesday/Friday collections will be made Wednesday and Saturday.

       

      Residents may put their trash and recyclables out for pick-up starting at 6 pm the night before collections so they do not have to change their morning schedules to make sure these materials are collected. 

       

      Throughout the summer, when the temperature is 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.
