District to distribute sandbags Wednesday night

District residents can pick up sandbags between 6 p.m. and midnight Wednesday at RFK Stadium, Lot 7.

Residents must show D.C. identification and are limited to five sandbags per household. Residents are also required to load the sandbags, weighing between 40 and 50 pounds, themselves.

The Department of Public Works handed out 13,500 sandbags to about 2,700 households during Hurricane Irene, William O. Howland Jr., DPW director, said in a news release. “We ask that residents who received sandbags last month refrain from coming back for more.”
