      D.C. trash removal starts early due to heat

      WASHINGTON (AP) - Trash collection in the District of Columbia will begin an hour earlier than normal this week because of extremely hot weather forecast for the area.

      The Department of Public Works will begin collecting residents' trash and recycling at 6 a.m. on Wednesday and Thursday.

      The Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments says Wednesday will be a Code Orange day with unhealthy air quality.
