From DPW:

“The District’s 90°+ heat wave continues through this week; therefore, the DC Department of Public Works trash and recycling crews will begin their collections an hour earlier, at 6 am between Monday, July 11 through Friday, July 15.

To make sure trash and recycling are out for pick-up at the earlier time, DPW’s customers can put their items out starting at 6:30 pm the day before their collections are to be made. Trash and recycling containers should be removed from public space by 8 pm on the collection day or a sanitation citation may be issued.

Throughout the summer, when the temperature is predicted to be 90˚ or higher or the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments announces unhealthy air quality (Code Orange or Code Red days), DPW collection crews will begin their work at 6 am to avoid health or environmental issues.”
