Rainbow Trash Can

When this first came into my mailbox, I was like, “really, an online chat about trash?” But then I started to think about all the stuff I’m constantly looking up about how, when, and where to disposes of all my Lord of Petworth refuse and unwantedness, and realized this could really be helpful.

So here is the 411 on how to talk trash:

Do you know which items are to be collected with your regular trash schedule and for which you need to schedule a bulk appointment?

Are you new to the city and still not sure of your collection date?

Do people dump or place trash illegally in the alleys near your home?

Are your neighbors setting out their trash correctly?

Do you know what to do if your trash or recycling can needs to be replaced?

Are there alternatives to purchasing a DC government can?

Get answers to these questions and more by tuning into the Department of Public Works (DPW) Solid Waste Management Administration’s live, online chat Wednesday, May 25, 2011 at noon. Residents can join or follow the discussion at dpw.dc.gov/livechat once the chat session begins. To submit questions in advance, send an email to [email protected]

WHAT: Live, One-Hour Chat to discuss Trash Collection in the District

WHEN: Wednesday, May 25, 2011, 12:00-1:00 pm

WHERE: dpw.dc.gov/livechat

This will be the 13th in a series of monthly online chats with DPW Director William O. Howland, Jr., and other DPW officials. Next month’s online chat will discuss DPW’s rules and procedures for citizens’ hauling items to the Ft. Totten Transfer Station.
