(WASHINGTON, DC) The DC Department of Public Works (DPW) will observe Presidents’ Day, Monday, February 19; therefore, sanitation services and most parking enforcement will be suspended and will resume on Tuesday, February 20.
- 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.
Streetcar parking enforcement is daily, including weekends and holidays, e.g., Presidents’ Day, along H Street and Benning Road, NE, between 3rd Street and Oklahoma Avenue, NE. On Sundays and holidays, streetcar parking enforcement is between 8 am and 11 pm. Enforcement on Mondays—Thursdays is 6 am to midnight; and on Fridays and Saturdays, enforcement runs between 6 am and 2 am. Normal enforcement citywide of other parking violations resumes February 20.
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.
