Brooklyn Community Board 14 is pleased to announce that Department of Sanitation Commissioner Jessica Tisch has approved additional Sanitation collection services in portions of the district to assist residents in preparation for Passover observances, which commence at sundown on Wednesday, April 5, 2023. The plan provides for additional collection services.
See the below link to read/download the letter and map for additional information:
- For areas with regular collection on Wednesday/Saturday, there will be an extra pick up on Tuesday, April 4.
- For areas with regular collection on Monday/Thursday and Tuesday/Friday, there will be an extra pick up on Wednesday, April 5.
In these special collection zones, there will also be an additional recycling collection on Wednesday, April 5 beginning at midnight. All recycling materials must be placed at curbside on the evening of Tuesday, April 4 for collection on Wednesday, April 5 from 12:00 midnight to 8:00 am.
The Department of Sanitation requires appointments for removal of refrigerators, water coolers, freezers, and air conditioners. Call 311 or visit www.nyc.gov/sanitation to make these collection appointments. In order to ensure pick-up before the holiday, it is suggested that residents schedule pick-ups for appliances by Wednesday, March 22. It is important to prepare early and utilize sanitation services the week before the holiday for bulk items to avoid an excessive volume of debris that could impede planned schedules. All mattresses placed out for collection must be sealed in plastic. Failure to do so will result in a summons.
