Here's an easy way to get rid of your bulky trash

Here’s a quick way to get rid of your bulky trash, or if you have old electronics laying around, etc, as DC gov is sponsoring a bulk trash collection on Saturday, Oct 13th at 13th & Upshur Streets NW from 1 to 4 pm.

This special expanded Roll-Off Day offers you many more services to unload unwanted items and help your community! Meet 311 operators, report service requests, and learn about how you can reduce waste, save energy, and prevent pollution in our neighborhoods and environment.

  • Dispose of bulk trash in our dumpster. No hazardous materials (including paint) accepted.

  • Donate clothing and furniture to A Wider Circle to help victims of the fire at Arthur Capper Senior Apartments.

  • Donate other items for thrift store resale.

  • Recycle electronics like computers, TVs, and household appliances (1-2 pm ONLY).

  • Donate building materials to Community Forklift.

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

Space is limited. For disposal of hazardous materials or any items outside of this event's hours, please visit the Fort Totten Transfer Station, open 8 am to 3 pm every Saturday.
