My former neighbor, DC Mayor Adrian Fenty, announced that starting today Department of Public Works recycling collection crews will accept an expanded list of items for recycling, especially plastics.

We can now recycle all kinds of stuff like plastic bags, aerosol cans, plastic lawn furniture and flower pots. Flower pots? I’ve got lots of pots, pots that I’ve saved for a rainy day or for the day DC will recycle them. I’m excited. Complete story here.
