Heat brings earlier trash pickups
Trash and recycling crews in the District will begin their pickups an hour earlier Tuesday and Wednesday because of forecasts that have temperatures soaring into the 90s on both days. Air quality also is predicted to be unhealthy for those days.
The Department of Public Works said crews will begin collections at 6 a.m. Residents may put trash and recyclables out for pickup starting at 6 p.m. the night before.
Throughout the summer, when the temperature is predicted to be 90 degrees or higher, or the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments announces unhealthy air quality, DPW crews will begin their work at 6 a.m.
