DPW to Observe Memorial Day, Monday, May 28

Tuesday, May 22, 2018
Parking regulations will be enforced along the streetcar line. DPW will NOT enforce rush hour and other parking rules. Solid waste services also will be affected.

The DC Department of Public Works will observe Memorial Day, Monday, May 28; therefore, sanitation services and parking enforcement will be suspended that day.


Trash and Recycling Collections: Trash and recycling collections will “slide” to the next day, for the remainder of the week. 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 p.m. the night before collection and removed from public space by 8 p.m. on the collection day to avoid sanitation enforcement.

Street Sweeping: Street sweeping will be suspended Monday and resume Tuesday, May 29.

Fort Totten Transfer Station: The Fort Totten Transfer Station, located at 4900 John F. McCormack Drive, NE, will be closed Monday, May 28 and will reopen Tuesday at its normal hours of operation of 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday Household Hazardous Waste/E-cycling drop-off services will not be affected by the holiday.


DPW will not enforce parking meters, residential parking, rush hour lane restrictions or tow abandoned vehicles Monday, May 28, except along the streetcar line.

“Blocked” Streetcar Parking Enforcement is daily, including weekends and holidays, along H Street and Benning Road, NE, between 3rd Street and Oklahoma Avenue, NE. The hours of enforcement are concurrent with the streetcar schedule.

Normal enforcement citywide resumes Tuesday, May 29.

DPW provides essential city services in two distinct program areas: environmental services/solid waste management and parking enforcement. Both contribute to making District streets and public spaces clean, safe, attractive and accessible for all residents, businesses, commuters and visitors.
