Passover Sanitation Collection

Posted on:

Brooklyn Community Board 14 is pleased to announce that Department of Sanitation Commissioner Kathryn Garcia has approved the Board’s plan for additional Sanitation collection services in portions of the Flatbush, Midwood and Kensington to assist our residents in preparation for Passover observances, which commence at sundown on Friday, March 30, 2018. The plan provides for additional collection services.

– For areas with regular pick up on Monday/Thursday there is an additional collection on Friday, March 30th.
– For areas with regular pick up on Tuesday/Friday or Wednesday/Saturday there is an additional collection on Thursday, March 29th.
All refuse materials, including Chometz, should be placed at curbside no later than 11:00 am on Friday, March 30th.
For all residents there will also be an additional early morning recycling collection on Friday. All recycling materials must be placed at curbside on the evening of Thursday, March 29th for collection on Friday, March 30th from 12:00 midnight to 8:00 am.
New Department of Sanitation policy requires special appointments for removal of all bulk items. A special appointment for removal of discarded refrigerators and air conditioners is required as well. Arrangements can be made by calling 311 or by visiting prior to the week of March 23rd to ensure pick-up before the holiday. It is important to prepare early and utilize sanitation services the week before the holiday 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 Andrew Pugliese, Deputy Chief Michael Carolan, District 14 Superintendent Joseph Sciulara, 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 regular business hours.
