Set out all garbage and recycling after 4 pm on the night before the scheduled collection day. Remove empty bins by 9 pm on the collection day, or by 9 am the following morning if collection occurs after 4 pm.
During snow operations, recycling and garbage collection may be disrupted while DSNY plows and cleans the streets.
There are no collections on these holidays:
Here’s when to set out garbage and recycling on holidays:
Garbage: Set out after 4 pm on the evening of the holiday, for collection beginning the next day. Collection may occur earlier or later than the usual time.
Recycling: Hold until the scheduled collection day the following week. When there are back-to-back holidays (for example, two Monday holidays in a row), recyclables will typically be collected the day after the second holiday.
Organics (only for buildings with NYC Organics Collection): Set out food scraps, food-soiled paper, and yard waste after 4 pm on the evening of the holiday, for collection beginning the next day. Collection may occur earlier or later than the usual time.
