Roll-Off Day is Tomorrow (7/28): Opportunity to Get Rid of Bulk Items

July 27, 2018

It is not uncommon for our community to repeated see illegal dumping, especially around the first of the month as people move. Its especially all too common to see mattresses leaning up against litter cans in the neighborhood.

So I’m excited to share that tomorrow, in an effort to deter illegal dumping, the Mayor’s Office of the Clean City, Mayor’s Office of Community Relations and Services, and Department of Public Works are hosing a Roll-Off Day in Columbia Heights on Saturday, July 28th, from 1pm-4pm in front of the 14th and Girard Street Park.

You can bring your bulk trash and other debris to 14th & Girard Streets NW on Saturday, July 28, for FREE disposal! While no hazardous materials or electronics will be accepted you can take those to the Fort Totten Transfer Station for disposal.

If you live in the neighborhood and need assistance moving items, you can call 202-442-8150 to RSVP for volunteer help.

Reminder: Street Sweeping Enforcement Officially Begins March 1st

February 28, 2014

Street cleaning signAs a REMINDER:  Street Sweeping Season begins March 1! – DPW cleans residential and arterial streets using mechanical sweepers of various sizes. Every year, between March 1 and October 31, these sweepers operate along residential streets where signs are posted restricting parking during street sweeping hours. A $45 ticket may be issued for violating these restrictions.

In past years, DPW has issued warnings rather than tickets during the first week, but there is never a guarantee that that will happen this year.  In any event, be mindful that the time of year where you have to move your car for the street sweeper has arrived.

Lost Dog — Do You Recognize?

May 11, 2012


Does anyone recognize this dog? It was found near the intersection of Luray and Warder last night (Thursday, May 10) early in the evening.  There were no tags and the person currently caring for it adds “appears a bit dirty and frazzled.  Somewhat friendly.”

Please contact me if you know how to reunite the owner with their pet.

PSA: Lost Cat

September 6, 2010

I’ve just received the following message:

“I found a sweet cat stuck between our fence and our neighbor’s.

She (I’m pretty sure it’s a girl) likes people and is not your typical street cat.”

The cat, pictured at right, was found on the 600 block of Princeton Place.

If you recognize this cat or can help reunite her with her family, please help.
