86th Street Elevator Construction at 4th Avenue:

The contractor for the 86th Street elevator project has submitted a request to perform sanitary line work at night on the west side of 4th Ave at 86th Street.  The work will last for one month starting Sept 24th.  

During the day, all noisy activities would take place:  Concrete sidewalk demolition with jackhammers (sawcutting has already been completed).  The work will take place within the sidewalk area.  In order to maintain pedestrian accessibility,  a barricaded walkway in the street will be in place in addition to maintaining a reduced width on the sidewalk.  The contractor will work with the business owners to maintain access to the street cellars. 

The following would be performed at night within noise code:

  • Excavation for manhole and trench locations. 
  • Installation of sheeting
  • Setting of pipe and manholes

Doing this work at night will also reduce the impact to pedestrians. Noise mitigation measures will be in place as set up and approved by NYC Department of Environmental Protection.

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 S90,000 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.

Notification from DSNY - Bulk Pick Up Changes in Community Board 10

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. Due to size limitations, bulk items larger than 4 feet by 3 feet cannot be collected using dual-bin trucks. 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.
