Subject: DDOT: New Requirements for Roll-off-Debris Containers


The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) Public Space Regulation Administration is revising requirements for the use of roll-off-debris containers. These requirements will appear in the Transportation Online Permitting System (TOPS) effective May 19th, 2017.

The new TOPS module will include permit application requirements and the Public Inconvenience Fee (PIF) for larger roll off debris containers on roadways that are designated for Residential Parking Permits.

The new requirements offer an incentive to use smaller containers, which reduce the number of parking spaces affected by use of the containers. Under the new requirements one container will be approved for individual use.

Key enhancements in the new Roll-of-Debris Container module include:

•Display Height, Length, and Width of containers on issued permits
•Limit the number of parking spaces occupied by a roll-off-debris container to one (1) parking space for smaller containers and two (2) parking spaces for larger containers
•Charging the PIF for larger containers that are in place longer than 30 calendar days
•Additional application review if roll-off debris containers adversely impact parking in residential neighborhoods, or violate public space regulations

No new roll-off-debris container permit applications or renewals will be accepted after May 11, 2017 pending the roll-out of the new module. All roll-off-debris container applications or renewals submitted on or after May 19, 2017 will comply with the new permitting requirements and PIF charges.

DDOT’s new TOPS enhancement is designed to ensure that the impact of roll-off-debris containers in residential areas is reduced, while still allowing this necessary element of the construction process.

The new requirements address concerns raised by residents and reflect input from stakeholder engagement with the development and contracting communities.
