Early Trash Collection June 28-29 and July 2-3
Changes impact Georgetown, Burleith and Glover Park
The Department of Public Works (DPW) will start trash collection at 6 a.m. for the remainder of the week and again on Monday and Tuesday in anticipation of high temperatures during normal service hours.
Starting work an hour earlier helps crews "avoid health or environmental issues" on days when the temperature and heat index are predicted to be above 90 degrees, according to a press release from DPW.
Trash may be placed on the curb starting at 6 p.m. the day before collection. Trash and recycling containers have to be removed by 8 p.m. on collection day.
Additionally DPW offered the following reminder for customers about Independence Day service impacts:
"DPW will observe Independence Day, Wednesday, July 4, and sanitation services will be suspended for the holiday. They will resume Thursday, July 5.
In once-a-week trash and recycling collection neighborhoods collections will slide to the next day, so Wednesday's collections will be made Thursday, Thursday's collections will be made Friday and so on.
In twice-a-week collection neighborhoods, normal collections will be made Monday and Tuesday; however, Thursday's collections will be made Friday and Friday's collections will be made Saturday."
