The Department of Sanitation will resume limited refuse, recycling, and organics collection throughout the city starting tonight at 7 p.m.
Residents whose refuse, recycling, and organics wasn’t collected earlier because of the snowstorm should place their material out at the curbside after 4 P.M this evening. Residents are asked to place their material out in a cleared area, if possible, to help Sanitation Workers gain access to the cans and bags.

The Department operates 59 district garages and manages a fleet of 2,022 rear-loading collection trucks, 450 mechanical brooms and 365 salt/sand spreaders. The Department clears litter, snow and ice from approximately 6,000 miles of City streets and removes debris from vacant lots as well as abandoned vehicles from City streets.
