No Sanitation Operations, July 5

The New York Department of Sanitation (DOS) has announced that since the Independence Day holiday falls on Sunday, July 4, the Department will observe Independence Day on Monday, July 5. Therefore, there will be no garbage or recycle collection, and street cleaning on Monday, July 5, 2004.

Residents who receive Monday garbage collection should instead place their trash out at curbside Monday evening, after 5 P.M. for pickup on Tuesday, July 6th. Residents who normally receive Monday recycling collection will not have their recycling material picked up until the following Monday, July 12.

Neighborhoods that regularly receive garbage or recycling collection on Tuesday should place their cans or bags out on Monday evening, after 5 p.m. as normal. Residencies and commercial establishments that unlawfully leave trash, recyclables, or dumpsters at curbside over the holiday are subject to a fine of up to $250. Shopkeepers, restaurant managers, and other merchants who are serviced by private carting companies should contact their refuse halers to determine whether they will receive collection on the holiday.

All Sanitation Department administrative offices will be closed on Monday, July 5th in observance of the holiday. For questions about Sanitation services and schedules over the holiday, contact the Citizen Service Center at 3-1-1 or visit the DSNY web site at www.nycgov/sanitation.
