From the Golden Triangle BID:

The Golden Triangle Business Improvement District (BID) is making recycling easier for the neighborhood’s 86,000 workers and millions of annual visitors with the installation of 10 recycling bins within the BID’s 43-block area. The recycling bins are being installed during the BID’s 4th annual “Clean, Green & Golden” spring-cleaning week going on through March 31.

In this pilot program, ten cans are being co-located with existing trashcans for the purpose of collecting recycling. Some key locations include: the southeast corner of Farragut Square Park, the southeast corner of Duke Ellington Park, and 1369 Connecticut Avenue (adjacent to Dupont Circle). Data on recycling volume will be collected through the spring and fall.
