Capitol Hill BID Clean Team Assists with Federal Park Areas During Government Shutdown

Washington, DC – The Capitol Hill Business Improvement District (BID) has expanded its clean team services

in and around federal-owned parks in response to the government shutdown on Friday, December 21.

These areas are typically maintained by the National Parks Service, but since many of their workers have been furloughed, the Capitol Hill BID clean team will service receptacles in the following areas around Capitol Hill: Lincoln Park, Stanton Park, Marion Park, Folger Park, Seward Square, Maryland Avenue, NE and 10th Street, NE, Maryland Avenue, NE and 11th Street, NE, and the Pennsylvania Avenue Corridor from 3rd Street, SE to Barney Circle.

“We feel maintaining the cleanliness of the National Parks areas is critical to the overall well-being of Capitol Hill and we pledge to do what we can to pitch in during the shutdown,” said BID President Patty Brosmer.

While temporarily maintaining the trash cans in federal parks around Capitol Hill, CHBID also services approximately 145 of DC Government public space receptacles throughout the five linear miles within their service boundaries, seven days a week, 361 days a year.
