Collection Schedule For Residents

Set out your garbage, organics, and recycling after 4 pm the night before your scheduled collection day. Remove empty containers by 9 pm on the collection day, or by 9 am the following morning if your collection occurs after 4 pm.

To learn your collection days, enter your building number and the name of your street, select borough, then click Search.
(For example, 125 Worth Street is: BUILDING NUMBER: 125, STREET NAME: Worth Street)

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