Dumpster Ordered to be Removed & Stop Work Order Issued

Today DDOT issued a stop work order against the individuals using this dumpster without a permit in a public space in Naylor Court NW. 

From DDOT: - 

[The] Inspector ... has concluded his inspection for the dumpster located in the vicinity of the subject address. His inspection revealed a dumpster in the rear of the location where he engaged a work crew on location and issued a “STOP Work Order”.  Afterwards [the]  Inspector ... contacted the dumpster company and advised them to remove the dumpster immediately, his report is below for review.


At the request of my supervisor I performed [an] investigation to the given location. I did find a dumpster at the rear of [an] open lot. I informed the crew on site that all work should and will stop immediately. A stop work order was issued as well notification number 602026. I also made contact with the dumpster company, and informed them that the dumpster should be removed from the public space immediately. GTI is the name of the company contact information :703-392-0050"
The dumpster contained miscellaneous trash items, numerous trash bags, multiple replacement car fenders and other parts which had been stored on the roof at one point and fallen into the inner space as the roof collapsed. 

One passerby commented on the odious nature of the inside of the building as it was being emptied, saying that it reeked "of human waste." No doubt the unsecured building has provided refuge to criminal activity as well as comfort to the often seen large rats that have been living there.

For now the property appears to have been secured and the inside trash removed. Today's stop work order will arrest the illegal process that the owner has undertaken and continue to protect the building from intentional injury. Now the walls must be secured and the roof replaced to come into compliance with the orders of the Historic Preservation Review Board and the Historic Preservation Office. 

A huge nod to DDOT for their role in responding and acting quickly and decisively today. A sincere note of community appreciation also goes to Council Member Jack Evans' Office and staff for their role in lighting fires!

The community is watching this story very closely. Today was just another chapter in a long saga.
