No trash pickup in D.C. today

By Washington Post editors

A reminder that there will be no trash pickup in the District today in order to give sanitation workers that chance to attend the funeral of a fellow worker who was shot and killed last week.

Larry Hutchins, a 24-year Department of Public Works veteran, was fatally shot while preparing for duty Oct. 13. D.C. police are still searching for the killer.

All Thursday trash and recycling collections, including once-a-week collections, will move to Friday, and Friday’s collection will be picked up on Saturday. Any bulk collections scheduled for Thursday will be rescheduled, and those residents will be notified accordingly.

“DPW is mourning the loss of a cherished employee,” said DPW Director William O. Howland. “Our solid-waste employees will join the rest of the DPW family to pay their respects to Mr. Hutchins and his family on Thursday. I want to thank everyone -- Mayor Adrian Fenty, District citizens, the media and our fellow colleagues -- for their support during this time and patience during the brief interruption of these services.”
