DPW Crews Continue to Collect Residents' Holiday Trees

Wednesday, February 14, 2007

(Washington, DC) The DC Department of Public Works (DPW) is continuing to collect residents’ holiday trees and asks residents to remove ornaments and lights before placing them where their trash is collected. “We realize not everyone has finished enjoying their holiday trees,” said DPW Director William O. Howland, Jr. “So, our trash collection crews will pick up the trees during an upcoming trash collection cycle. We just ask residents to put their trees where they place their trash.” Howland explained that collecting trash is the priority so the truck’s capacity will determine when trees are collected. He added that residents may call the Citywide Call Center at (202) 727-1000 with questions.
