Riding a caffeine wave to the weekend? The cup isn't recyclable because of the thin plastic lining. The lid gets trashed because it's likely a sus mix of plastics. But that cardboard band is fine for the blue bin. #ArlYouRecyclable? https://recycling.arlingtonva.us/where-does-it-go/?search=coffee

I bet this is not how to dispose of everything including the kitchen sink!
Hi DES! We just noticed after the rain storm that water collected in our bins - eek standing water! Is there a reason they don't have drainage holes? We will be drilling our own.
There is no better way to start your day than by witnessing the Leaf Truck, one of my favorite things about living in Arlington!
Kudos to our hard working County Environmental Services workers who keep essential services such as trash removal and curbside recycling going during the COVID-19 pandemic, March 19, 2020
Arlington County Department of Environmental Services I love that you all have compost drop off! When dropping off food scraps, is it ok if it's in a Biodegradable Products Institute (BPI) Certified green compost bag, like this one?
Spotted at South Glebe and 2nd over the weekend. I guess we're happy they didn't just leave it at a recycling center??? :-)
What is the height limit for your parking garage near the Medstar Capital Icecomplex? My friend has an 8 foot van and is looking for somewhere to park it to attend a Capitals even at the complex.
DYK? It is surprisingly satisfying to pitch glass bottles into the purple and green dumpsters at the end of a long day. Both me and the guy next to me left with big smiles on our faces. Highly recommend!
Hey Arlington, why is it ok for people to leave these scooters in the middle of sidewalks? For everyone, but especially those with various disabilities, it makes it extremely difficult (sometimes impossible on narrow sidewalks) to navigate a sidewalk. Why are the companies that own these things not required to have storage locations like bikeshare?
Hi folks! Are old CDs recyclable? I didn't see them on the "Where Does It Go?" list. Thanks!
Are you all EVER going to be done with the constant underground work along Columbia Pike? It's taking FOREVER! I've lived in the same place for 11 years and Columbia Pike has been under construction the entire time!
