Sanitation crews to work through holiday weekend in all parts of the City
NEW YORK – The New York City Department of Sanitation, the world’s largest municipal sanitation agency, today announced that trash and recycling collection service for Monday, 9/6/21, which had previously been suspended in observance of the Labor Day holiday, will take place across the City.
Residents who normally receive Monday trash or recycling collection may place their material at the curb between 4 p.m. and midnight Sunday evening as usual for collection beginning on Monday.
The Department will continue to collect storm debris throughout the weekend. Residents can place storm debris out at the curb for collection immediately and do not need to wait for their regular collection day. While not required, we encourage residents to report storm debris locations to 311. It may several days for Sanitation to complete debris removal operations. We appreciate patience as we work through the holiday to collect material across the City.
All Sanitation Department administrative offices will remain closed on Monday, September 6, in observance of the holiday.
For questions about Sanitation services and holiday schedules contact 311 or visit nyc.gov/sanitation.
