PRESIDENTS DAY GARBAGE COLLECTION

NO GARBAGE, RECYCLING COLLECTION OR STREET CLEANING ON PRESIDENTS’ DAY, MONDAY, FEBRUARY 20TH

The New York City Department of Sanitation (DSNY) announced that in observance of Presidents’ Day, there will be no garbage or recycling collection, or street cleaning on Monday, February 20, 2012.  In addition, all Sanitation Department administrative offices will be closed on Monday, February 20th, in observance of the holiday. 

Residents who normally receive Monday garbage collection should place their trash out at curbside Monday after 4 PM for pickup. While many residents will receive refuse service within a day or two after the holiday, some residents may not be picked up until the next scheduled collection day. Those receiving Monday recycling collection will have their recycling picked up on Tuesday, February 21st because they didn’t receive a recycling collection on the Lincoln’s Day holiday.     

ALL MONDAY RECYCLING COLLECTION TO BE PICKED UP ON TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 21ST

DUE TO BACK-TO-BACK MONDAY HOLIDAYS OF LINCOLN’S BIRTHDAY AND PRESIDENTS’ DAY

The New York City Department of Sanitation (DSNY) reminds all New Yorkers that residents who would normally have received recycling collection on Lincoln’s Birthday, Monday, February 13th, will have all of their recycling picked up on Tuesday, February 21st, due to the observance of Presidents Day on Monday, February 20th.   For questions about Sanitation services and holiday schedules, residents can contact 311 or visit the DSNY website at www.nyc.gov/sanitation.

CHCA Receives 2011 Daffodil Award for Brooklyn

We are so proud to announce that Crow Hill Community Association was given the 2011 Daffodil Award for Brooklyn by New Yorkers for Parks. Chair Stacey Sheffey was honored at their annual Daffodil Project Benefit Breakfast

For the past 3 years, Stacey and the Go Green/Go Clean committee have been planting the daffodil bulbs in the tree pits and planters along Franklin Avenue. The bulbs are donated through New Yorkers for Parks as a living memorial to 9/11. We look forward to continuing the project for our 4th year this fall when we will have 20 new planter boxes on Franklin Avenue.
