The 2020 Waste Schedule is now in effect.
In the Region of Queens, waste collection is every second week as indicated on your waste collection schedule. Blue bags, green carts, and garbage bags are picked up on the same day. For a sorting guide, click here . Place materials at the curb by 8:00am on collection day. Collection occurs on all holidays except Christmas Day and New Year's Day. Collections that would normally fall on those days would then occur on the next collection day. Click the image on the left for the 2020 Waste Collection Schedule.
