“Dear PoPville,

Wondering if readers can be of assistance: we just bought a condo in a 4 unit building, which means that our building has to contract for their own trash removal, according to DC law. I’ve been googling around and looking for advice online on how to proceed without much luck besides the official 311 FAQs, so thought your readers may be able to help.

First, we’re the first occupants of the building, so is there a chance we can get DC pickup at least until the 4 units fill up?

Next, any recommendations on private trash collectors? Our current apartment uses Tenleytown Trash and they are the most prominent option, but I haven’t heard great things about them.

Any trash wisdom would be much appreciated!”
