DPW Updates New Year’s Trash Collection Schedule Due to National Day of Mourning

Friday, December 29, 2006

(Washington, DC) In observance of New Year’s Day, Monday, January 1, 2007, and the national day of mourning declared for President Gerald R. Ford’s funeral on Tuesday, January 2, there will be some changes to Department of Public Works (DPW) services next week. 

New Year’s Day: Monday, January 1, 2007
On New Year’s Day, the District government will observe normal holiday operations—offices will be closed and most services will be suspended. There will be no DPW trash and recyclables collection and no parking enforcement on that day. Residential trash and recyclables collection will slide one day for the remainder of the week citywide, beginning Tuesday.

National Day of Mourning for President Gerald R. Ford: Tuesday, January 2, 2007 
On Tuesday, a national day of mourning, the District government will be closed. There will be no DPW parking enforcement, except to support security and other requirements as necessary for the former president’s state funeral. 

Note: Residential trash and recyclables will be collected and bulk trash appointments will be honored on Tuesday. In other words, Monday’s trash and recyclables should be set out on Tuesday. Additionally, the Fort Totten Trash Transfer Station will be open for resident drop-offs from 1 to 5 pm on Tuesday.
