Temporary Closing: Fort Totten Transfer Station

Updated: Mar 28, 2022

“As the DC Department of Public Works (DPW) strives to improve our facilities, April 2, 2022, will be the last day the Fort Totten transfer station will be open for bulk and residential drop-off until the completion of our capital improvement project.

DPW has received a stormwater management grant to improve the quality of the runoff stormwater generated by the bulk trash and citizens’ drop-off areas exposed to the weather at the Fort Totten Trash Transfer Station. Based on the required renovations, this location will not be available for residential drop-off until the Fall of 2022.

Operations will be moved to the Benning Road Transfer station located at 3200 Benning Road, NE. Beginning April 6, 2022, bulk and residential drop-off will take place Wednesday through Friday from 10 am until 2 pm. Residential drop-off is an alternative to scheduled bulk pick-up. DPW recommends that residents use 311 to schedule a bulk pick-up at a time convenient for the resident. Residents can schedule up to seven items per service request. Pick-ups are collected within 14 days of a scheduled service request.

Household Hazardous Waste drop-off will continue Saturdays from 7 am until 2 pm. Shredding will take place on the first Saturday of every month from 7 am until 2 pm.

The Fort Totten transfer station renovations are extensive and will take approximately six months to complete.”
