Emancipation Day Observed Mon, Apr 16: No on Trash Pickup, Yes on Reversible Lanes

With this Monday, April 16 designated an official DC holiday, Emancipation Day (and it's the 150th anniversary, no less!), we are passing along two important reminders about the schedule for the day.

First, please note that all DC offices will be closed, including the DMV and the Fort Totten trash transfer station.

Second, DPW has announced that trash collection will "slide" to the next day.

Third, in recognition of the fact that Emancipation Day is not a holiday for federally or privately employed workers, rush hour lane reversals and rush hour parking enforcement will stick to the normal weekday patterns.

The full text of DPW's announcement is below.


DPW To Observe Emancipation Day, Monday, April 16

DPW will enforce rush hour restrictions; sanitation services will be suspended for the day.

The DC Department of Public Works will observe Emancipation Day, Monday, April 16; however, rush-hour parking restrictions will be enforced. Vehicles violating these restrictions will be ticketed and towed. 

Please note: Other parking regulations, including expired meters, residential parking and street sweeping, will be suspended for the holiday.

Additionally, the Nationals will play Sunday, April 15 and Monday, April 16, so parking enforcement will occur both days in the Nationals Park neighborhood.

Sanitation services will be suspended for the holiday and will resume Tuesday, April 17.
  • In once-a-week trash and recycling collection neighborhoods collections will "slide" to the next day, so Monday's collections will be made Tuesday, Tuesday's collections will be made Wednesday and so on.
  • In twice-a-week collection neighborhoods, Monday and Thursday collections will "slide" to Tuesday and Friday, and Tuesday and Friday collections will be made Wednesday and Saturday.
  • Street sweeping will be suspended Monday and resume Tuesday, April 17.
The  Fort Totten Transfer Station will be closed Monday, April 16 and reopen Tuesday, April 17 to residents between 1 pm and 5 pm.
