The Department of Public Works will continue to collect holiday trees and greenery until January 31 for composting.

“Dear PoPville,

It seems like the city’s phone-based system for having Christmas trees collected and composted is a bit overwhelmed. I think it’s curious that the city rolled out its 311 app but doesn’t have a way for residents to use it to have their trees picked up.”

From DPW:

The Department of Public Works will continue to collect holiday trees and greenery until January 31, 2020.

Residents can dispose of their trees and greenery in three ways:

1) by calling 311 to schedule an appointment,

2) at one of four locations or

3) with regularly scheduled trash or recycling collection.

We’ve had a larger than anticipated response for scheduled pickup and we are working diligently to fulfill every request. Extra crews are working to collect holiday trees and greenery and on average they are collecting nearly 1,600 trees a day. Since collection began, more than 5,000 trees have been collected and we are on track to collect more trees than we did in 2019. Please note that after January 31st you may place your holiday trees and greenery where your trash and recycling is collected. These trees and greenery will not be composted.

We’re about a month out from summer. That means you’ve still got time for spring cleaning!

Lexi Grant, an operations manager at Well-Paid Maids, shared her go-to spring cleaning tips with WTOP News. Step one? Declutter. Get rid of items you don’t use, find space for items that need a home and organize those areas.

Then, it’s time to dust. Lexi starts with high-touch surface areas (think: refrigerator, dishwasher, counters, microwave). One area she sees often neglected is the bedroom — and it makes sense. Heavy furniture is difficult to move around, but it’s important to really get in there so dust doesn’t affect your sleep.
