    The New York City Department of Sanitation has announced that starting today, people interested in working as emergency snow laborers for the upcoming snow season should register at their local Sanitation garage.

    The New York City Department of Sanitation announced the official launch of a new and innovative appointment system designed to help DSNY more efficiently collect large non-recyclable bulky items such as sofas, mattresses, and large wooden furniture.

    New Yorkers can now arrange for timely bulk pickup appointments online at or by calling 311.

NYC Organics is Growing!

    A major expansion of our curbside organics collection program is now underway!
