Debris Collection Extended
Councilman Eric Ulrich has advised that the Department of Sanitation has agreed to extend the deadline for bulk residential debris pick up to February 18th.
Stepping out of a Council meeting to speak by mobile phone, Ulrich noted that extending the Special Debris Collection was achieved by working with the Deputy Mayor and other city agencies.
Noting that this service is vital to many residents still gutting homes, clearing storm soaked debris and rebuilding, Ulrich said, this “is great for the people of the Rockaways and Broad Channel.”
Once the final deadline expires, residents will need to secure their own dumpsters and engage private carting companies.
No agreement on commercial bulk refuse has been announced as yet.
