Collection Schedule for Nonprofits & Agencies

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.

Check your collection schedule.

During snow operations, recycling and garbage collection may be disrupted while DSNY plows and cleans the streets.
