Labor Day, for many Washingtonians, means a three-day weekend and a short work week. With the Monday Federal holiday, comes suspended services at the local level as well.

Here's what you can expect in Georgetown today, Labor Day:

Trash Collection

Trash collection and street sweeping will be suspended for the holiday today and will resume Tuesday, Sept. 3. The Department of Public Works will make Tuesday and Friday trash collections on Wednesday and Saturday for Georgetown residents. Recyclables and yard waste will be collected on Saturday. For Burleith and Glover Park residents, who usually have their trash collected once a week on Thursdays, collection will happen Friday instead.

Parking Regulations

Parking regulations, including expired meters, residential parking, street sweeping and rush hour lane restrictions will be suspended today. The exception is the neighborhood around the Nationals Stadium, where parking regulations will be enforced.

Additionally, street sweeping will be suspended Monday, Sept. 2 so motorists will not need to move their cars that day.


As summer winds down, so does the pool season. Francis Pool (2500 N St., NW), (3265 S St., NW), and (1555 34th St., NW) will operate under normal weekday and weekend hours through Labor Day weekend. All but Francis are closed Monday, Sept. 2.


Though the Advisory Neighborhood Commission generally meets the Monday before the first Thursday of the month, the ANC will meet Tuesday, Sept. 3 because of the holiday. Meetings are at 6:30 p.m. at Georgetown Visitation.
