Remember the "Trash Slide" This Week

Monday, October 10,  is Columbus Day, one of those holidays that you may completely forget about, if you are not one of the lucky ones who get that day off from work. So it's easy to forget the "trash slide" and put your trash and recycling out on the wrong day.

Here are some reminders from DPW about the holiday schedule:

The Ft. Totten Transfer Station  at 4900 John F. McCormack Road, NE will be closed Monday, October 11, to residential customers and will reopen Tuesday, October 11.  The next monthly household hazardous waste/e-cycling/shredding drop-off day is Saturday, November 5, from 8 am to 3 pm. This service is provided the first Saturday of the month, except holidays. Residents may bring unwanted toxic items, such as pesticides, batteries and motor oil. Electronics, including televisions, computers and cell phones, also will be accepted. Residents may bring up to five boxes of personal paper documents and credit cards to be shredded for free. For a complete list of items, go to and click on Household Hazardous Waste / E-Cycling / Shredding. Compost also is available to residents on Saturdays only.

Parking enforcement, including ticket writing for residential parking, expired meters, street sweeping and rush-hour violations, will be suspended. DPW will enforce parking restrictions at bus stops near Metro stations where WMATA is performing track work. DPW also will suspend towing abandoned vehicles. Enforcement will resume Tuesday, October 11.

Other services suspended for Columbus Day include scheduled street and alley cleaning and nuisance abatement. All services will resume Tuesday, October 11.
