D.C. trash pickup one hour earlier

By Washington Post editors

The District's Department of Public Works is moving up its trash and recycling collections one hour earlier this week to deal with the soaring temperatures and unhealthy air quality. Pickup will start at 6 a.m. Wednesday through Friday.

Residents may put trash and recyclables out for pick-up 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 collection crews will begin work at 6 a.m. to avoid health or environmental issues.
