This morning’s deadly shooting in the DPW parking lot near W Street NE has caused today’s trash/recycling/bulk waste scheduled pickups to be pushed off a day while the organization regroups. MPD has blocked off some areas of the waste processing facility and the streets nearby, which prevented DPW from serving citizens today. This has created a bit of a scheduling issue, as trash days were already being delayed a day due to the Columbus Day holiday.
Our hearts go out to the family of Larry Hutchins, who was killed in the incident, and our thoughts for a speedy recovery go out to the injured worker, who has not yet been named.
Here’s the details on your next pickup:
For once-a-week pickups:
If your normal trash day is Tuesday: Your trash will be picked up next Tuesday.
If your normal trash day is Wednesday: Your trash will be picked up tomorrow.
If your normal trash day is Thursday: Your trash will be picked up Friday.
If your normal trash day is Friday: Your trash will be picked up Saturday.
For twice-a-week pickups:
Your next normal post-holiday pickup will be made according to the standard holiday schedule.
