Fall Clean-up Needs You!


Join your neighbors on Saturday, November 3, for the 2018 fall clean-up sponsored by the BCA, MedStar Georgetown University Hospital, and Georgetown University. We'll meet at the 38th Street entrance of Ellington Field at 9 am, fuel up on snacks and a beverage, and tackle the surrounding streets and alleys until 11 am.

The Department of Public Works’ Helping Hand program will provide supplies—rakes, brooms, shovels, and trash bags. Hope to see you at the clean-up. Questions? Contact Janice Sims at (202) 333-6435.

Unwanted electronic equipment and household hazardous waste are not eligible for curb collection. They can be dropped off at DC's Fort Totten Transfer Station (4900 John F. McCormack Drive NE) every Saturday between 8 am and 3 pm, except holidays, and on the Thursday preceding the first Saturday of the month (except holidays), between 1 pm and 5 pm. Small electronics may be dropped off at Best Buy.

To learn more about reducing waste, recycling, composting, and special waste handling, check out Zero Waste DC. Try its new "What Goes Where" app out the home page, and watch the YouTube video on how to prepare your recycling. (No plastic bags in the recycling, please. They can be recycled at the Wisconsin Avenue Safeway just inside the parking lot-level door.)
