DGS-SE procures waste management hauling services for all District agencies under the purview of the Executive Office of the Mayor, as well as for some independent agencies like DC Public Library. These procurements enable agencies to collect and dispose of recyclable materials separate from the municipal solid waste stream. These recyclables are then processed at regional recycling facilities.
DGS is responsible for the sustainable collection and disposal of waste generated by DC government facilities. We collect and dispose of trash and recyclables, which are processed at regional waste management facilities. In partnership with our sister agencies, we all share a responsibility to manage waste properly.
