This in from Judy Stanton, Executive Director of the Brooklyn Heights Association:
1) Tomorrow, Monday, February 13 (Lincoln’s Birthday) is a holiday for the NYC Sanitation Department. No garbage will be picked up in the Heights until Wednesday.
2) Wait until Tuesday night before putting any garbage out on the curb.
3) If Monday is your recycling collection day, hold back all recylables until further notice from the BHA, because another Monday holiday follows this one.
4) Next Monday, February 20, (Washington’s Birthday)is also a Sanitation Department day off. Follow the same instructions as above.
NOTE: If Monday is your recycling day, watch for another BHA email about trash. I’ll have an update about whether/when the DSNY might collect the recycling backlog.
If you’re in an apartment building where garbage is managed by a custodian, please send me his/her email address to receive these helpful notices, for a cleaner Brooklyn Heights.
