My apartment building (Axiom at Capital Yards) was recently bought by a management company. Since taking over they’ve started initiating the most asinine policies I’ve seen in nearly a decade of DC apartment renting. This, however, takes the cake. How many 800 square foot apartments do you know with the extra space for a 13 gallon trash can? Also, how fantastically lazy do they think we are that carrying a trash bag 23 feet to the chute end of the hall is an inconceivably difficult task?
Oh, and I heard from a friend in the building whose lease is up for renewal and they’re instituting a monthly $25 trash convenience fee. Makes the decision to renew that much easier, so that’s positive.
Sorry, this is just so stupid I had to share:
Dear Valued Resident:
Axiom at Capitol Yards is pleased to announce a new time –saving service and trash management solution for you: door-to-door trash and recycling pickup 5 nights per week. You’ll no longer have to lug heavy bags of trash down the hallways.

Well this is amazing. Thanks to a reader for sending. “Myself and two friends decided to build it one weekend as a display for our holiday party.” Awesome. More photos after the jump.
