“Earlier this year an expanded list of recyclable items was announced in the District. While residents serviced by the Department of Public Works (DPW) have been able to recycle the new items for several months, starting on January 1, 2018, all residential and commercial properties–including multi-family dwellings, office buildings, and restaurants–will be required to recycle this full suite of materials. And to make things simple, the items that should be recycled are now uniform throughout DC–whether you’re at home, work, or school.
The District strives to achieve a goal of diverting 80 percent of citywide waste from landfills and waste to energy facilities. The increased number of recyclable items and focus on resident education aims to assist in achieving this goal.
New items added to the list of recyclable items in the District include: pizza boxes; paper and plastic plates, cups, lids, and to-go containers; plastic produce, deli/bakery containers, and trays. (more…)

From Grand Duchess (former Pharmacy Bar, High Dive):
“We’ve installed a translucent screen that fits the entire way across our bay window so that movies can be seen from inside as well as outside the bar. Showtime is 9pm.
Next Tuesday (the 26th) we will be showing Step Brothers, followed by Point Break on Oct 3rd. For the rest of October, we will be doing Tuesday night horror double features in the lead up to Halloween: flicks like From Dusk Till Dawn, Suspiria, Jason Takes Manhattan, etc.”
