DPW Trash, Recycling Collections Will Begin at 6 am Monday, June 18 and Tuesday, June 19 Due to Predicted 90°+ Temperatures

Friday, June 15, 2018

(Washington, DC) The forecast calls for 90°+ temperatures in the District early next week; therefore, the DC Department of Public Works’ (DPW) trash and recycling crews will begin their collections an hour earlier, at 6 am on Monday, June 18 and Tuesday, June 19.

To make sure trash and recycling are out for pick-up at the earlier time, DPW’s customers can put their items out starting at 6:30 pm the day before their collections are to be made. Trash and recycling containers should be removed from public space by 8 pm on the collection day or a sanitation citation may be issued.
