Snow Alert issued for Friday, Feb. 5 at 12:00 A.M. to prepare equipment and personnel for possible storm
A snow alert is not a weather forecast, but indicates the potential for winter precipitation.
Calling a “Snow Alert” allows DSNY to begin to prepare for a possible response by loading salt spreaders, attaching plows (if necessary), preparing tire chains and notifying other city agencies and personnel.
DSNY now accepts e-waste at its five Special Waste Drop Off sites.
According to state law, it is illegal for New York residents to place most electronics at the curb for collection.
Through a partnership with Electronic Recyclers International, electronics are collected in bins and are recycled domestically using strict industry and environmental standards.
