Litter Can Collection and Installation

Litter Can on U Street

Litter cans are emptied at night, following a daily to three times per week schedule, based on how much trash they receive. Collections are noisy, which is why litter cans are not placed in residential neighborhoods. There are approximately 4,800 litter cans installed along the District’s commercial streets. To report an overflowing litter can or to request a litter can, call 311.

Request the following service by calling 311 or using 311.dc.gov.
