Barricade/Tent/Compost/Recycling Rental

Union Park's neighborhoods are known for their connectedness. Making an effort to get to know your neighbors will increase the safety of your block. Participating in -- or hosting -- a block party on National Night Out, on the first Tuesday of August, is a great way to start. 

Barricade Rental

Union Park has street barricades that community members can use for block parties, neighborhood, or family events. The street barricades are required by the city when you block off your street or alley -- but ours are a more-affordable option than getting them from Public Works.

  • Barricades only cost $40 and also require a $80 deposit which you will get back after returning the barricades.
  • Reservations are first-come, first-served.
  • To borrow our barricades, you must have an event permit from the city.

To reserve this equipment, download and return the reservation form to wako@unionparkdc.org.

Block Party Tent Rental

Union Park has a 10x20 tent that the community can rent for block parties, neighborhood or family events as well. 

  • The tent rental costs $80 and also requires a $100 deposit which you will get back after returning the tent undamaged.
  • Reservations are first-come, first-served.

Recycling/Compost Containers

 We have 3 compost containers and 4 recycling containers that Union Park community members can reserve out free of charge. Please email wako@unionparkdc.org if you are interested in reserving any combination of these containers.
