Our friends at Community Board 2 have advised us that, because of budget cuts related to COVID-19, the City Department of Sanitation will no longer pick up food scraps or yard waste for composting. Instead, they will be collected with other trash. Residents are advised to store the brown composting receptacles in secure places. This suspension of composting collection is presently scheduled to last through June 30, 2021. Also, the Department is suspending appointments to pick up electronic waste.
All other trash and recycling collections will continue on their normal schedule.
