Join your neighbors on Saturday, June 8, for the 2019 spring 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. Questions? Contact Janice Sims at (202) 333-6435.
As a reminder, unwanted electronic equipment and household hazardous waste are not being picked up during this event (or eligible for curbside 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.
To learn more about reducing waste, recycling, composting, and special waste handling, check out Zero Waste DC. Try its "What Goes Where" feature on its home page if you’re not sure what’s recyclable. And remember, no plastic bags in the recycling. They and plastic pouches/air pillows that carry the How2Recycle label can be recycled at the Wisconsin Avenue Safeway at bins at the top of the escalators and inside the parking lot-level door. Only clean, dry plastic bags and film, please. Remove receipts or any other items.
