HHW/E-CYCLING/DOCUMENT SHREDDING SLATED FOR SAT., DEC 3

 

From Linda Grant:

The DC Department of Public Works announced yesterday that the November drop-off for household hazardous waste, e-cycling and personal document shredding will be Saturday, December 3, at the Ft. Totten Transfer Station, between 8 am and 3 pm, 4900 John F. McCormack Rd., NE.*  To accommodate residents whose religious beliefs prohibit them from using the Saturday drop-off, DPW accepts household hazardous waste and e-cyclables the first Thursday of the month (December 1, from 1 pm to 5 pm). 

 

While DPW normally offers personal document shredding the first Saturday, documents to be shredded cannot be accepted on Thursdays because DPW cannot protect these documents until the shredding contractor arrives the first Saturday.

 

Acceptable household hazardous waste items include acids, aerosols, antifreeze, batteries, cleaning chemicals, fluorescent light bulbs, stains, varnish, fertilizer, pesticides, automobile fluids, and lighter fluid.  Acceptable e-cyclables include audio/visual equipment, CD Rom drives and CDs/DVDs, cell phones, computers and monitors, fax and copy machines, pagers, power supplies, printers, TVs, VCRs and tapes, and video games and software.

 

District residents may bring up to five, medium-size boxes (no larger than the standard District recycling bin, which is approximately 20” x 14” x 14”) of personal documents to be shredded. Only paper (staples, paper and binder clips on the paper are okay) and credit cards will be accepted.  No business or commercial material will be accepted. 

 

For a list of all household hazardous waste and e-cyclables accepted by DPW, please click on the HHW link at www.dpw.dc.gov.

 

Free mulch is available at Ft. Totten to residents every Saturday, except holidays, until the supply is exhausted.  The mulch can be used for residents’ gardens and neighborhood beautification projects.

 

*Directions to Ft. Totten:  Travel east on Irving Street, NW, turn left on Michigan Avenue, turn left on John F. McCormack Road, NE and continue to the end of the street.
