Starting the week of May 1, the New York City Department of Sanitation will begin the curbside collection organic material, from residents living in Brooklyn’s Community Boards 1 and 16. Additionally, the Department will soon begin organics collection from residents in Community Boards 2, 13 and 15.
DSNY continues to expand curbside collection of organics. The Brownsville Multi Service Center has opted to join the program. The Department will present a bin and welcome them. Additionally, certain residents of Brooklyn 16 are now eligible for organics collection.
Because keeping New York City clean takes a full-court press, the New York City Department of Sanitation is partnering with NYC Parks and the New York Knicks to tip off #TalkTrashNewYork, a new springtime anti-litter campaign promoting clean streets, sidewalks, beaches and parks across the City.
