Are noise complaints about trash trucks worth filing? Every few weeks an incredibly loud trash truck shows up at a nearby building around 6:30 a.m. and moves a dumpster back and forth for an hour. I’m thinking of filing a complaint with the Department of Consumer & Regulatory Affairs because it’s before the 7 a.m. legal start time, but not sure whether anything will happen and curious what proof would be most useful (a video?). If it matters, this is in a mixed residential and commercial block near Thomas Circle. Thanks!
