In March, my trash can was gone when I went to bring it in from the curb at 8am. It was clearly marked with our house number, and we looked and never found it. We live in Mt. Pleasant. On March 23, I called DC DPW to inquire about next steps, and submitted the $45 charge the same day online for a replacement.
After several polite check-ins with DPW and reassurances and apologies on their part, we still do not have a trash can.
Is this typical? What is going on? Wondering what readers have experienced.”
I guess this answers my question about this one.
I love DC, I stayed through some difficult years in the early 90s. Almost all my life's great joys & heartbreaks have happened here. But the push for us to become an elite world-class shinning-city on a hill is undercut by our failure to provide basic city services to our people https://t.co/J17ERpNnUA

And on the 76th day the lord provided @BryanWeaverDC and @MariaTCardona with a city trash can. And while he may be a benevolent lord, he’s still a jokester so no recycling can. @DCDPW pic.twitter.com/b2e4BxZ1OZ
