Sanitation Collection: Nope, Not Yet

As garbage collection crews try to catch up in Brooklyn Heights, it’s not only blue recycling bags and stacks of newspapers and magazines that continue to pile up along many of the residential streets of the neighborhood… Black garbages bags are lined up in equal numbers. Sanitation crews in Cobble Hill and Boerum Hill were scrambling to catch up in those nabes before tackling the Heights earlier this week.

UPDATE: SATURDAY FROM BHA’s JUDY STANTON: “Regular trash pick-ups took place late yesterday and overnight. If this didn’t happen on your block, I’d like to hear. Recyclables were NOT picked up and I have no idea when the DSNY intends to resume recylicng collection. Whenever I hear what I think is a reliable update, I’ll send one.”

Our last report Wednesday, October 31 from the Montague Street BID regarding sanitation collection: “It is expected garbage collections will resume either tonight or tomorrow morning. Recycling collections are suspended until further notice.” We’re standing by for a Friday update… (CT)

    Our trash on Columbia Hts was collected 12:35 AM Thursday (that was Wednesday’s collection). Today, Friday’s collection has not occurred yet. We remain hopeful.
