Keeping Things Tidy During Street Events

After an event such as a block party has occurred, the street needs to be properly cleaned in order to avoid getting a ticket. Follow the same rules for buildings, and make sure that materials are properly recycled.

Some of what needs to be recycled includes:

  • Paper
  • Corrugated cardboard
  • Metal cans
  • Plastic bottles & jugs
  • Glass bottles and jars
  • Lightly soiled aluminum foil wrap & trays

In addition, clearly label receptacles so that participants know where to put materials.

There is an $100 fine from the Department of Sanitation (DSNY) for not abiding by these rules.

In addition to removing everything when the event is completed, try to ensure cleanliness while it is ongoing.
