Garbage and recycling pickups across New York City remain suspended. It's not clear when curbside pickups will resume.
The Department of Sanitation has been working to clear two feet of snow that dumped on the city at the start of the week. Many trash trucks are still hooked with plows and are not on trash collection duty.
Because of the holiday schedule and then snow, trash has not been collected since Christmas Eve. Fox 5 News shot video of trash bags piled 5-feet-high on one Upper East Side block on Friday.
The Department provides regularly scheduled curbside and containerized refuse collection services for every residential household, public school, public building and many large institutions in New York City. Curbside sites are normally collected either two or three times per week and containerized sites are normally collected from one to three times per week, which is based on population density.
According to the Sanitation Web site, an announcement will be made when garbage collection will resume.
