2014 Passover Sanitation Collection Schedule

Brooklyn Community Board 14 is pleased to announce that Department of Sanitation Commissioner Kathryn Garcia has once again approved the Board’s plan for additional Sanitation collection services in portions of the Flatbush, Midwood and Kensington areas to assist our residents in preparation for Passover observances, which commences at sundown on Monday, April 14, 2014. The plan provides for an additional collection.

Please click here to see a map of the collection schedule.

For areas with regular pick up on Tuesday/Friday or Wednesday/Saturday the plan provides for an additional collection on Monday, April 14th.

For areas with regular pick up on Monday/Thursday the plan provides for an additional collection on Friday, April 11th.

The additional Monday recycling collection will take place from 12:00 midnight to 8:00 AM. Therefore all recycling materials must be placed at curbside on the evening of Sunday, April 13th for collection on Monday, April 14th.

All regular refuse materials, including Chometz, should be placed at curbside no later than 11:00 AM on Monday, April 14th. The use of plastic bags for these special collections is strongly suggested. Department of Sanitation policy requires a special appointment for removal of discarded refrigerators and/or air conditioners. Arrangements can be made by calling 311 or by visiting their web site, www.nyc.gov/sanitation prior to the week of April 7th to ensure pickup before the holiday. It is important to prepare early and utilize the regular sanitation services the week before for bulk items in order to avoid an excessive volume of debris that could impede planned schedules. All mattresses placed out for collection must be sealed in plastic. Failure to do so will result in a summons.

Special thanks to the Department of Sanitation Brooklyn South Borough Superintendent Damiano Cassiano, Deputy Chief Daniel Stine, District Superintendent Rosario Marrone, as well as our local elected officials for their assistance in developing the plan. If you have any questions regarding the Passover supplementary schedules, please call the Community Board 14 District Office at 718-859-6357 during the hours of 9:00 AM and 5:00 PM.
