Veterans Day Reminders from DPW

Veteran's Day 2011 is set on the anniversary of the armistice that ended World War I, the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month and this year it's also the eleventh year of the century. Even on such a historic anniversary, we must take care of the mundane scheduling details and practical aspects of the occasion. So here is what you need to know from DPW.

Trash and Recycling Collections: There will be no trash and recycling collections. These collections will “slide” to the next day.  Friday’s collections will be made Saturday. This applies to both once-a-week and twice-a-week collection neighborhoods. 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. 

Parking Enforcement:  Parking meters, residential parking, and rush hour lane restrictions will not be in effect. DPW also will not tow abandoned vehicles. Parking enforcement will resume Saturday, November 12.

Ft. Totten Hazardous Waste/E-Cycling: Fort Totten Transfer Station, located at 4900 John F. McCormack Road, NE, will be closed Friday, November 11. It will reopen Saturday at 1 pm for residents to bring bulk trash. The next Saturday Household Hazardous Waste/E-cycling/Document Shredding drop-off day is December 3, from 8 am to 3 pm.  

Leaf Collections:  Between Monday, November 7 and Friday, November 19 (including Veterans Day), DPW will collect leaves from “Area A” neighborhoods as designated in the leaf collection brochure mailed to households that receive DPW trash/recycling collections. Residents can use DPW's web site to view the 2011-2012 leaf collection schedule by selecting Leaf Collection and clicking on “Check Leaf Collection Status in Your Neighborhood”-- then enter the address.
