Trash Containers Will Get Picked Up
By May 19, 2014 0 928•
William Howland, director of the Department of Public Works functions, told those at the April 28 advisory neighborhood commission meeting that marked containers for pick-up would be collected within a couple of weeks. He said DPW would focus on Georgetown and Capitol Hill, two neighborhoods where many of the new containers are unwanted. Residents expressed frustration with the unsightly clutter of various containers along the sidewalks. Howland said that residents could turn the containers upside down to indicate pick-up or spray paint them “Take me,” if the DPW stickers were missing.
