The DC Department of Public Works (DPW) will observe Presidents’ Day, Monday, February 18; therefore, sanitation services and most parking enforcement will be suspended and will resume on Tuesday, February 19.
•    Trash and recycling collections in once-a-week collection neighborhoods will “slide” to the next day for the remainder of the week. In twice-a-week collection neighborhoods, Monday’s and Thursday’s collections will slide to Tuesday and Friday. Tuesday’s and Friday’s collections will slide to Wednesday and Saturday.
•    The Fort Totten and Benning Road transfer stations will be closed on the holiday, reopening the following day.
•    DPW will not enforce parking meters, residential parking, rush hour lane restrictions or tow abandoned vehicles Monday, February 18, 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, February 19.
