Disposing of Cooking Oil:

“I’m curious to know the proper procedure for disposing of cooking oil in the District. An anonymous resident in my building periodically leaves a big jug of cooking oil next to the dumpster, which eventually leaks/attracts rodents. I thought it would need to be taken to Ft. Totten Transfer station, but the DC water website says to “Pour all cooking oil and grease from pots and pans into a covered waste grease container and recycle or dispose of in the trash.”(

I’ve tried reaching out to DPW, but no response yet. So can I just throw this gallon jug of oil in the trash? Seems weird.”

Ft. Totten Retail Development:

“Any news on what is happening with the Caffritz “Art Place” property in Ft. Totten? The retail and apartment developments keep getting put on hold. Considering the property is walking distance to three metro lines, I don’t understand the hesitation to build.”
