New Collection Bin Laws
New Laws
    New laws allow DSNY to immediately remove illegally placed clothing collection bins on public property.

    After removal, the owner has 30 days to redeem the bin. The owner may be responsible for storage charges, removal charges and civil penalties.

    If the bin is not redeemed, DSNY will correctly dispose of the bin and its material.
