DPW Releases Service Schedule for Emancipation Day

Wednesday, April 12, 2006

(Washington, DC) In observance of DC Emancipation Day, a new District holiday, DPW offices will be closed and most public services will be suspended on Monday, April 17.  On that day, there will be no trash or recyclables collection; no street sweeping; no DPW parking enforcement, including meters, rush hour and residential parking restrictions.
However, parking restrictions will be enforced along the posted Emancipation Day Parade route (Pennsylvania Avenue between 4th and 14th Streets, NW).  Vehicles parked on the parade route will be towed.

All municipal services resume on Tuesday, April 18. Following the Monday holiday, trash and recyclables collection will slide one day for the remainder of the week in Supercan areas.  In twice-weekly collection areas, service will slide on Tuesday and Wednesday, with normal collections on Thursday and Friday.
