No Garbage Collection in Brooklyn Heights Until Wednesday

This in from Judy Stanton of the Brooklyn Heights Association:

Dear Neighbors:

I hope all are enjoying a holiday and had not planned to intrude on celebrations of Christmas Day with news about garbage.

However, as I’ve been seeing that some of the neighbors are putting trash on the curbs – out of habit, I thought I should remind all who may be forgetting this that Monday, December 26 is a holiday for the City Sanitation Department. There will no garbage pick-ups in Brooklyn Heights before Wednesday, December 28, so please refrain from putting trash on the curb before Tuesday night.

Please watch for a follow-up email about recycling collection for the streets which are normally serviced on Mondays.
Given that the next Monday, Jan 2, will also be a Sanitation Dept. holiday, we may be expected to hold back two week’s worth of recylables.

Cheers! Judy Stanton, BHA Executive Director

    Problem is that those of us on a Monday recyclables collection schedule seem headed for two misses in a row, unless DOS has made provision for some relief. That’s a lot of post-holiday party bottles, and the neighborhood will be pretty clanky. I’ll try calling the local Sanitation district tomorrow about their planning. Used to be you could call the district directly, but under 311, it’s much more bureaucratized. A few calls from the community might have some effect, though.
