Press Release # 15-15, FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The Department of Sanitation will resume limited collection throughout the city starting tonight at 7 P.M. with an emphasis on Monday recycling material.
Residents whose Monday recycling wasn’t collected due to the previous snowstorms and the recent Dr. Martin Luther King holiday should place their material out at the curbside after 4 P.M this evening.
The Department of Sanitation (DSNY) promotes a healthy environment through the efficient management of solid waste and the development of environmentally sound long-range planning for handling refuse, including recyclables. 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.
