Sanitation Department shifts to summer hours

Press Release # 08-23, FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

The New York City Department of Sanitation announced today that starting Monday, June 9, 2008, and continuing through November 2008, the primary hours of work for the Department's refuse collection and recycling force will be 6:00 A.M. to 2:00 P.M. The change in hours allows DSNY personnel to do their strenuous work in cooler morning temperatures during the warmer late spring and summer months. Homeowners must still place their refuse and recyclables at curbside after dusk on the day prior to their scheduled day of collection.
