On Saturday, the City of New York’s Sanitation Department announced that it’s continuing citywide storm debris and trash collection. It also told concerned Staten Island residents on Twitter that trucks were out on the island, but filling up fast.
The department did not respond to requests for comment Monday on specific Staten Island cleanup efforts.
Trucks will continue to be out Tuesday, despite Election Day’s holiday designation. Meanwhile, recycling pickup has been canceled throughout the city.
