Dear PoPville – need help/advice on trash collector that mixes trash/recyclables

“Dear PoPville,

This happens weekly behind my apartment building in Logan Circle. I have notified the landlords of our apartment building. I have called Bowie’s Trash Inc. twice, both times they said that they would take care of it and that it would not happen again, but there has been no change in the past ~6 months.

I read that DC has some of the most lenient laws in the country that allow collectors to mix a certain percentage of recycling with trash due to narrow alleyways. It’s true that our alleyway is narrow, however the other buildings in the same alley have collectors that haul away recycling separate from trash.

What, if any, are the next steps I can take to make this change? Thanks!”
