D.C. cancels Thursday trash pickup
The D.C. Department of Public Works announced Monday that trash, recycling, bulk and animal carcass collection will be suspended this Thursday, Oct. 21, to allow sanitation staff to attend funeral services for Larry Hutchins, a 24-year DPW employee who was shot and killed while preparing for duty Oct. 13. D.C. police are still searching for a suspect in the case.
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.”
