    In observance of Independence Day, there will be no garbage, recycling, or organics collection on Tuesday, July 4.

    Residents who normally receive Tuesday trash, organics and recycling collection should place their material out at curbside after 4 p.m. on Tuesday, July 4 for pickup.


    Because keeping New York City clean takes a full-court press,we are launching #TalkTrashNewYork, a new anti-litter campaign promoting clean streets, sidewalks, beaches and parks across the City.

    The #TalkTrashNewYork campaign is a reminder that it's not difficult to make a shot into a litter basket. Watch the video at
