Commercial Waste Compactor Demonstration Project

Commercial Waste Compactor Demonstration Project

For Fiscal Year 2020, DSLBD awarded up to $150,000 in grant funds for its Commercial Waste Compactor Demonstration Grant Project to qualified DC Main Streets grantees, which in turn are coordinating and managing the installation of compactors with multiple adjacent or nearby businesses to maximize the impact on mitigating rodent and sanitation issues.

The Commercial Compactor Demonstration Project grant aims to help licensed DC businesses (for-profit entities) reduce sanitation issues that can attract rodents and pollute DC’s waterways.

The Project focuses on collaborative efforts to improve the public realm with a specific focus on sanitation conditions of commercial corridors.

DSLBD’s project is part of the Mayor Bower’s larger citywide effort to address sanitation and rodent issues.
