District Snow Emergency
A Snow Emergency will go into effect at 7 am on Thursday, March 5. By declaring a Snow Emergency, the District Snow Team (Department of Public Works and Department of Transportation) will be able to clear snow emergency routes curb to curb. To learn where a vehicle has been towed, call the Towed Vehicle Locator office at (202) 541-6083 or go to http://dpw.dc.gov/service/locate-towed-vehicle. Visit www.snow.dc.gov for the latest information on the snow emergency.
DC Department of Public Works will begin trash and recycling pick-ups in the morning and will continue as long as is safe. If trash and recycling pick-up is discontinued because of the snow, residents are asked to hold onto their items until their next collection day.”
