Report Illegal Dumping
More Info

    Have you witnessed someone transporting garbage in a vehicle, and dumping the material in the street, or in a park or lot?

Zero Waste
Learn More

    There’s no “away” when we throw garbage into a can or litter basket.

    Trash goes into landfills, where it decomposes – sending methane, carbon dioxide and toxins into our air, soil and water.

    0X30 minimizes this: By contributing zero waste to landfills by 2030, New Yorkers will be protecting our environment more than ever before.

E-Waste Disposal

    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.
