For the first time in a week, city sanitation department crews are out picking up garbage instead of plowing snow.
A limited number of crews are on the streets Sunday, picking up dumpsters outside large apartment buildings. On Monday, they resume full-time garbage removal, according to the regular schedule.
Residents should put their garbage out this evening, if they haven't already. People who did so earlier this week may need to shovel it out themselves from snowbanks; sanitation crews will only take bags and cans, if they can get them.
If your recycling trash is already out, you might as well put it back: the Sanitation Department says recycling pickup is suspended until further notice.
