CB14 Additional Passover Sanitation Collection Services

Posted on:

Brooklyn Community Board 14 is pleased to announce that Department of Sanitation Commissioner John J. Doherty 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 Friday, April 6, 2012. The plan provides for an additional collection.

For areas with regular pick up on Monday/Thursday or Wednesday/Saturday the plan provides for an additional collection on Friday, April 6th. For areas with regular pick up on Tuesday/Friday the plan provides for enhanced collection on Friday, April 6th. (Click on the map to see a larger image).

The additional/enhanced Friday 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 Thursday, April 5th for collection on Friday, April 6th.  The use of plastic bags for these special collections is strongly suggested.

All regular refuse materials, including Chometz, should be placed at curbside no later than 11:00 AM on Friday, April 6th.

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, prior to the week of March 26th to ensure pick-up 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 Myron Priester, Deputy Chief Daniel Stine, District Superintendent Kevin Tock, 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.
