Snow Plow

Sanitation Commissioner John Doherty announced that starting Monday, November 10, the Department of Sanitation will begin its annual night plow operations that enable the Department to respond promptly and effectively to snow and ice conditions around the clock.

The Department has a front line defense of 353 salt spreaders and storage capacity more than 200,000 tons of rock salt at 34 storage facilities throughout the city. Once snow begins to accumulate, approximately 2,000 plows can be fitted onto DSNY trucks to clear the city’s 6,000 miles of street and highways. For more information on Sanitation services call 311 or visit the Department’s website at www. nyc. gov/sanitation.
