Press Release # 10-18, FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Starting the week of July 19th, 2010, the New York City Department of Sanitation is changing the recycling collection day in certain areas of Manhattan community boards 2, 5, 10, 11, and 12.  These changes will enable the Department to make the most efficient use of our resources. 

DSNY has been conducting outreach to all buildings in the affected community board areas.  DSNY's Enforcement Division will not be issuing 'failure to store' summonses to affected buildings during the start-up phase of the recycling collection changes.
