Noise from Garbage Truck

You can report noise from a garbage truck.

You can report a noisy City sanitation vehicle, including:

  • Garbage trucks
  • Snow melters
  • Specialized vehicles, including salt spreaders and plows

Investigations are most successful when you provide the truck number or vehicle plate number, district, and the time and place of occurrence. All City sanitation trucks are white. 

You can also report noise from a private garbage truck. This includes noise from any part of the truck but not noise from employees. If possible, you should provide a description of the truck, the license plate number, and times the noise occurs.
