Rules & Procedures

DSNY drop-off sites are only for non-commercial materials from NYC residents. Anyone with a commercial license plate will not be allowed to enter the site.

When you arrive at the drop-off site, you’ll be required to show a valid NYS driver’s license and vehicle registration. If you aren’t arriving by car, you can provide a picture ID and proof of residency, such as a phone or utility bill.

The drop-off location may not be immediately visible. If you have trouble finding the location, ask a DSNY garage foreman or supervisor at the site. DSNY officials will be there to instruct you, but the sites are do-it-yourself style. Wearing casual clothes and work gloves is strongly recommended.

Special Instructions for Batteries:

To prevent the risk of fire, individually bag each non-alkaline battery or use CLEAR tape to cover the terminals. Do not use opaque tape and do not bag or tape alkaline batteries.

At the drop-off site, place each battery into its designated collection container: alkaline, small sealed lead acid, auto, and "other".
