It seems that DPW is going to be closed tomorrow, and that means that MPD will be responsible for enforcing parking. And since they generally have bigger fish to fry, that means Free Parking!
DPW TO OBSERVE INDEPENDENCE DAY, TRASH/RECYCLING COLLECTIONS TO “SLIDE” TO NEXT DAY; PARKING ENFORCEMENT AND OTHER SERVICES WILL BE SUSPENDED
(Washington, DC) The DC Department of Public Works will observe Wednesday, July 4, Independence Day, and trash, recycling, parking enforcement and other services will be suspended. Trash and recycling collections resume Thursday when Wednesday’s collections will be made, Thursday’s collections will be made Friday and Friday’s collections will be made Saturday.
Parking enforcement (meters, residential and rush hour lane restrictions, and booting, towing or abandoned vehicle removal) also will resume Thursday. Other services that will be suspended for Independence Day include scheduled street and alley cleaning, graffiti removal or nuisance abatement and the Fort Totten Trash Transfer Station will be closed.
While DPW’s trash and recycling trucks are identical, trash and recycling materials are collected separately from one another. Trash and recycling containers should be put out for collection no earlier 6:30 pm the night before collection and removed from public space by 8 pm on collection day(s).
Residents with questions about the holiday schedule may call 202/727-1000 for further information. Also, the “Slide” Guide to holiday collections can be viewed in English and Spanish on the DPW Web site: www.dpw.dc.gov.
Let’s hope they’re playing with the $500 Rule.
