Sorry to be late with this, which arrived in your correspondent’s mailbox as he was returning from a New Year’s weekend on (yes) Cape Cod. Judy Stanton of the Brooklyn Heights Association gives us this update:
This is an updated reminder of the irregularities of NYC DSNY collection times, due to the consecutive holidays interrupting our usual Monday service.
If Monday (today) is your regular recycling collection day, please have all recyclables out on the curb tonight for pick up starting at midnight.
Paper will probably be picked up on the midnight to 8 AM shift tonight, and metal/glass/plastics should be picked up on the 6 AM -2 PM shift tomorrow (Tuesday).
Regular garbage will NOT be picked up before Wednesday.
ALSO, PLEASE REMEMBER THE NEXT 3 MONDAY HOLIDAYS WHEN DSNY SERVICE WILL AGAIN BE INTERRUPTED:
1) Martin Luther King, Jr. day – MONDAY, JANUARY 16.
2) Lincoln’s Birthday, observed – MONDAY, FEBRUARY 13.
3) President’s Day – MONDAY, FEBRUARY 20.
There will be NO garbage collection whatsoever on these days, and Monday recycling service will be skipped for the entire week, or longer.
Any changes in this ‘routine’ will bring another email about trash!
Discarded Christmas trees are not likely to be picked up at all this week, due to DSNY backlogs.
Note: These updates come to me via the Sanitation Department superintendent who is responsible for Brooklyn Heights. Should you experience service problems not referenced in these emails, it would be helpful to let us know by phoning the BHA office at 718-858-9193.
Happy New Year to All!
Judy Stanton, BHA Executive Director
