The Brooklyn Heights Association notified its members last night that the NYC Department of Sanitation has not scheduled garbage pick up for the neighborhood and does not expect them to do so anytime soon:
There is NO garbage collection planned by the City Sanitation Department until further notice, AND we do not expect notice to come soon.
Please, please hold all garbage (both recyclables and regular trash) , until the resumption of garbage pick- ups has been announced. Garbage piled on snow banks is disgusting. Do not copy your neighbors who have already ignored this message. Instead, tune in to the local TV news broadcasts, or check the city’s website, www.nyc.gov. During the weekend, I’ll be checking with the Department of Sanitation crews that serve Brooklyn Heights, and we will issue another e-blast when it’s time to take out the garbage.
