Private Snow Removal Contracts + Agreement

Registered contracts (awarded through the City’s competitive bids process) are currently in place this snow season to assist the Department in snow removal operations. Check this website for contract opportunities and the City Record for notifications regarding future solicitations for bids. There are two major categories for snow contracts: piling/hauling operations, and towing services to remove abandoned cars from streets.

During significant snow emergencies, the Department may hire operators with certain equipment to supplement DSNY’s teams and existing contracts.
