Thanks to A. for sending “Too Soon?” Well, given our track record

From DPW:

“Holiday Trees and Greenery will be collected December 27 – January 31. Residents in DPW-serviced households are asked to call 311 to make an appointment to schedule their collection between December 27 – January 10.

Trees and Greenery should be placed in front of residents’ homes or taken to the drop off locations where they will be composted and made available to residents at no charge. Please remove all ornaments and lights and do not place trees and greenery in bags.

After January 31, please place holiday trees and greenery where your trash is normally collected. They will be picked up along with your trash as space in our trucks permits. Unfortunately, trees and greenery collected after January 31 will not be composted.
Drop off Locations

Benning Road Transfer Station 3200 Benning Road, NE: 9AM-4PM
Fort Totten Transfer Station 4900 Bates Road, NE: 9AM-4PM
Bryant Street Sweep Shop 201 Bryant Street, NW: 9AM-4PM
South Capitol Street Graffiti Shop 2700 South Capitol Street, SE 9AM-4PM

DPW does not provide collection services for apartment and condominium buildings with four or more units. Owners and managers of these properties are required to provide their tenants with solid waste collections (this includes leaves and holiday trees/greenery).”
