About 311

The Office of Unified Communications’ (OUC) 311 Call Center Operation provides a one-stop service experience for constituents, residents and visitors searching for DC government services, numbers and information. The Operation was designed to make the public's interaction with the city government less frustrating.

Dial 311, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, to request scheduled services such as trash removal, pothole repair, bulk pick-ups and recycling collection. Callers can also use this number to report a missed scheduled service, inquire about city agency phone numbers and hours of operation, and to pursue other customer service-related items.
