NEW ROCHELLE, NY -- The Department of Public Works begins their summer collection schedule on Tuesday, May 31. All garbage, recycling and bulk items must be placed at the curbside for pickup by 6:00 a.m. on the scheduled day of collection. This policy is in effect between Memorial Day and Labor Day (September 5).
Next week will follow a holiday pickup schedule for sanitation, recycling and yard waste:
MONDAY- HOLIDAY- No Garbage/Trash/Yard waste pickup.
rescheduled to Friday
TUESDAY- Garbage/Trash North
WEDNESDAY- Garbage, Trash South
THURSDAY- Garbage, Commingled North
FRIDAY- Garbage, Commingled South; Yard Waste Collection North side of Quaker Ridge Road to Scarsdale border
Residents are reminded that plastic bags cannot be used for recycling. Instead, put commingled, paper and cardboard recycling inside covered containers up to 32 gallons and place at the curb on the appropriate pickup day. The City will not pick up recycling placed in ANY plastic bags – even plastic bags advertised as recyclable or biodegradable are prohibited. Cardboard boxes can be flattened and tied with twine but should not be placed loose at the curb.
New this spring: Expanded Westchester County guidelines now allow recycling of paper containers- the kind used for juice and milk, soup, cream, and egg substitutes. Place these with commingled recycling for pickup.
