November 15,2011 | Vito A. Turso/Matthew LiPani

Press Release # 11-42, FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

The Department of Sanitation has established the following protocols for anyone wanting to claim personal property that was removed from Zuccotti Park on Tuesday, November 15, 2011.

Beginning Wednesday, November 16th and through Friday November 18th, anyone wishing to claim property should go to the Department of Sanitation's Manhattan District 7 Garage located on West 56th Street between 11th and 12th Avenues between the hours of 8:00 AM and 4:00 PM. 

To gain access to the garage to claim your property, you should present valid photo identification. You will be asked to fill out a claim form regarding your property and provide any proof you may have that the items you are claiming should be returned to you. If you are able to locate the item you claim immediately, and DSNY determines that the item should be returned to you, DSNY will return it to you immediately. If DSNY is not able to determine immediately that it should be returned to you, the item will be put aside for a determination to be made later - for instance, DSNY may wait to see if others claim the item. Further instructions will be provided at the garage, and claim forms will be available for any lost or damaged property.
