Winter Schedule Begins for NYC Department of Sanitation
The New York City Department of Sanitation began its annual winter schedule operations Monday, October 28, 2019. Known as "Night Plow" the winter schedule enables the Department to have pre-scheduled staff on hand to respond promptly and effectively to snow and ice conditions around the clock. When it is not snowing, these Sanitation Workers are generally assigned to collection duties, and residents may notice their trash and recycling collected at a slightly different time during the season. This schedule shift lasts through mid-April. For further information on Sanitation services, call 311 or visit DSNY's website at www.nyc.gov/sanitation.
