Trash collection set to resume in NYC after storm

January 31, 2011

New York City's sanitation department plans to resume collecting trash and recyclables after services were suspended because of last week's snowstorm.

The Department of Sanitation says collection services will resume Monday. Sanitation Commissioner John J. Doherty calls on residents to clear snow from paths so crews can get to the trash.

Up to 19 inches of snow fell on the New York metropolitan area during last week's storm.

New York City has had 36 inches of snow this January, a record for the month. Residents have criticized Mayor Michael Bloomberg and his sanitation commissioner for their slow cleanup efforts this winter, especially after a Christmas weekend blizzard.

Bloomberg admitted the city's handling of the blizzard was "unacceptable."
