NYC Department of Sanitation (DSNY) Waste Setout Times Change on April 1st
The NYC Department of Sanitation (DSNY) is implementing new policies to reduce the time that trash, recycling, and curbside composting will sit on sidewalks. These rules will go into effect on April 1, 2023.
- If using a container with a secure lid, place waste at the curb 1 hour before closing, or
- If putting bags directly on the curb, place waste out after 8:00 PM
- Place waste out after 6:00 PM in a container of 55 gallons or less with a secure lid, or
- Place waste out after 8:00 PM, if putting bags directly on the curb
Not complying with these policies could result in fines. There will not be a grace period or warning period; enforcement begins April 1st.
Additionally, DSNY is hosting a series of one-hour information sessions on these new rules. You can register for one of these sessions by clicking on a date & time below:
