The NYC Department of Sanitation (DSNY) is implementing new policies to reduce the time that trash, recycling, and curbside composting will sit on sidewalks. These rules will go into effect on April 1, 2023.


  • If using a container with a secure lid, place waste at the curb 1 hour before closing, or
  • If putting bags directly on the curb, place waste out after 8:00 PM


  • Place waste out after 6:00 PM in a container of 55 gallons or less with a secure lid, or
  • Place waste out after 8:00 PM, if putting bags directly on the curb

Not complying with these policies could result in fines. There will not be a grace period or warning period; enforcement begins April 1st.
