HEALTH DEPARTMENT TO CONDUCT SIXTH ADULTICIDING OF THE SEASON TO REDUCE RISK OF WEST NILE VIRUS

Trucks will spray pesticide in parts of Brooklyn on the evening of Thursday, August 9th - Note New Date!!

**Spraying that was set for Wednesday 8, 2018 has been re-scheduled because of weather conditions, and is now set for Thursday 9, 2018 weather permitting, note when spraying is commencing there will be a police escort playing recorded announcement about going inside, closing your windows, etc. Stay Cool and Hydrated

August 6, 2018 – To reduce mosquito activity and the risk of West Nile virus, the Health Department will conduct its sixth adulticide treatment of the season. Trucks will spray pesticides in sections of Brooklyn on Thursday, August 9 between the hours of 9 p.m. and 6 a.m. the following morning, weather permitting. In case of bad weather, application will be delayed until Thursday, August 9.

For the truck sprayings in Brooklyn, the Health Department will use very low concentrations of DUET®. The risks of pesticides applied by the Health Department for mosquito control are low to people and pets. Some people who are sensitive to spray ingredients may experience short-term eye or throat irritation, or a rash. People with respiratory conditions may also be affected. To stay safe during spraying:

Stay indoors, whenever possible

Air conditioners can remain on. While unnecessary, you may wish to close air conditioner vents, or choose the recirculate function.

After spraying:

While unnecessary, you can wash outdoor toys and equipment with soap and water.

  • Wash skin and clothing exposed to pesticides with soap and water.
  • Always wash fruits and vegetables with water.

The most effective way to control mosquitoes is to eliminate any standing water. New Yorkers are also encouraged to mosquito-proof their homes and take precautions when spending time outdoors.

Reducing exposure to mosquitoes

Use an approved insect repellent containing DEET, picaridin, oil of lemon eucalyptus (not for children under 3), or products that contain the active ingredient IR3535.

  • Make sure windows have screens. Repair or replace screens that have tears or holes.
  • Eliminate any standing water from your property and dispose of containers that can collect water. Standing water is a violation of the New York City Health Code.
  • Make sure roof gutters are clean and draining properly.
  • Clean and chlorinate swimming pools, outdoor saunas and hot tubs. Keep them empty or covered if not in use. Drain water that collects in pool covers.

Report standing water by calling 311 or visiting nyc.gov/health/wnv . For more information about West Nile virus, call 311 or visit nyc.gov .

Raccoon Baiting in Brooklyn and Queens

On September 7th the U.S. Department of Agriculture and Cornell University will install bait stations containing oral rabies vaccines in Brooklyn and Queens. The City has allowed the use of oral rabies vaccines on public properties. Bait stations will be installed in parks and other wooded areas. This will help vaccinate raccoons against rabies and does not pose a serious health risk for people or pets. The vaccine bait is a liquid contained in small packages that are the size of ketchup packets. People should not touch these bait packets. Touching the liquid vaccine could cause a rash. The bait is not harmful to pets and cannot cause rabies. If pets find it, do not try to take it away from them. For general questions about the Wildlife Oral Rabies Vaccination Program you can contact Cornell University at (607) 253-3060.

DSNY Launches New Appointment Service to Schedule Large Bulk Pickups, Will Allow for More Timely Collections

Sanitation Commissioner Kathryn Garcia today 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 or by calling 311. “We’ve heard New Yorkers’ concerns regarding how to place out large bulky items for collection around the city,” said Commissioner Garcia. “Between July 2016 and June 2017, New Yorkers made nearly 90,000 calls to 311 to inquire about collection of large bulky items. Recognizing that we had implemented a hugely successful e-waste pickup program on Staten Island, we modeled our large bulky item collection service along the same principles,” she added. The new service is designed for items that are larger than four (4) feet by three (3) feet, such as sofas and bulky wooden furniture that can be lifted by two workers and be able to fit inside a Sanitation collection truck. “We always encourage New Yorkers to donate furniture and other items that they no longer want but that potentially can be reused by others,” said Commissioner Garcia. To find convenient donation centers and non-profit partners, visit the DonateNYC website. This service does not apply to items that require special handling, such as air conditioners, refrigerators, TVs, computers, and other electronics. To learn how to properly recycle or dispose of those items, visit the DSNY website or call 311. Also, metal, glass and rigid plastic items, including bedframes, patio furniture, and filing cabinets, should still be placed out for recycling collection after 4 p.m. the night before your scheduled recycling day. Some helpful tips:
  • Do not block foot traffic or place items in the street or in front of another property.
  • If you have more than six (6) large items for collection, schedule additional appointments.
  • Place your large items curbside after 4 pm the night before your appointment.
  • Mattresses/box springs should be placed in a plastic bag before setting out at curbside to prevent the spread of bed bugs and avoid a $100 fine.

If you live in Bay Ridge, Dyker Heights or Fort Hamilton there are changes in Bulk Pick Up. The Department of Sanitation uses a dual-bin truck for trash and organics collection.

If you are throwing out bulk items larger than 4 feet by 3 feet, such as mattresses, couches, or large pieces of furniture, etc., place them out after 4PM the evening before your last scheduled collection day of each week. These items will be collected by the end of day on Saturday.
