New York City Resumes Recycling Operations

New York City resumed collection of recycling after suspending operations following Superstorm Sandy.

The city said in a news release it resumed recycling collection Nov. 11.

New York’s Department of Sanitation (DOS) has collected more than 225,000 tons of waste, debris and trees as a part of storm cleanup operations. The DOS has 728 pieces of sanitation equipment working on debris removal.

The DOS continues 24-hour debris cleanup in the hard-hit areas of Staten Island, Queens and Brooklyn. Some non-emergency areas will continue to see reduced service while emergency cleanup continues.
