New Service Added: Labor Day Service Update From NYC Sanitation

August 29, 2022

In advance of the Labor Day holiday, the New York City Department of Sanitation has announced additional service and a change in guidance for Monday, September 5, 2022.
  • Residents who normally receive Monday trash collection should place their material at the curb SUNDAY EVENING, between 4 p.m. and midnight, for collection beginning Monday. This pilot “on-holiday pick-up” represents an additional service as collection normally does not take place on the holiday.
  • Residents who normally receive Monday recycling collection should place their material out at curbside between 4 p.m. and midnight on the following Sunday, September 11, for pickup on Monday, September 12.
  • Residents who normally receive Monday curbside composting collection should place their material at the curb between 4 p.m. and midnight Monday evening, for collection beginning the next day, Tuesday, September 6.
While the Department strives to offer this service, please note that collection delays are common after holidays. We appreciate patience as we work to collect the material.
