Pools Stay Open Later, Trash Collection Starts Earlier

District agencies respond to expected high temperatures.

The hitting the District this week means a few changes for Georgetowners' daily summer routines: trash will be collected earlier and pools will stay open later.

The Department of Public Works (DPW) will start trash collection at 6 a.m. for the remainder of the week 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.

If you're looking to keep cool, select pools will have extended hours Tuesday and Wednesday this week, unless they are otherwise closed on those days.
