Special Passover Collections

The Department of Sanitation will conduct special "chametz" collections in several predominantly Orthodox Jewish neighborhoods. 

Extra trucks will be dispatched to those neighborhoods for bulk, garbage, organics, and recycling pick-ups from Thursday, April 6 through Tuesday, April 11.

The week before Passover, residents in designated neighborhoods within certain Community Board Districts (listed below) can begin placing trash out after 4 PM on Wednesday, April 5.

These special collections are in addition to the normal refuse/recycling collections in these areas and are not guaranteed. Missed collection complaints will not be accepted for this special collection and residents will not face a violation if their items are not picked up. 

The collections will occur in predominantly Orthodox Jewish neighborhoods contained in the following Community Board Districts:

• Bronx: 8            
• Brooklyn: 1, 3, 9, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, and 18
• Queens: 6, 8, 9, and 14 
• Staten Island: 2 and 3
