This coming Saturday from 7-11am you can bring things like insecticides, lawn and garden products, bleach, old computers and cell phones to our truck, which will be parked on Huidekoper Place at the corner of Benton Street (north side.) We’ll be deliverying them to the Department of Public Works (DPW) recycling station at Benning Road. We’ll accept items until the truck is full. Please check this list: Acceptable/Prohibited Household Hazardous Waste and Electronics Items | dpw (dc.gov) and make sure to follow the guidance. We won’t be able to take anything that DPW may reject. This is not a bulk trash collection and we won’t be able to take any construction debris either. Paint is acceptable, but keep in mind that our local Sherwin-Williams paint store (corner of Wisconsin and S St.) accepts paint for recycling, too.
This is your chance to get rid of chemicals and electronic clutter before winter sets in!
Many thanks to those who have volunteered to help with this event. We can always use extra help, so please contact me if you want to assist!

GPCA volunteers are gearing up to offer this fun event. PorchFest is a day when Glover Park’s own
musicians can take to the stage (porch) to perform for neighbors and we can dance in the street. The
event will kick off at Stoddert Elementary again with one of our favorite bands and then the fun will
continue on the corner of 39th and W. To share your talents with neighbors or chip in to help, contact
Lisa McCluskey, firstname.lastname@example.org. Stay tuned to the Glover Park Citizens’ Association website
and the listerv for details.
