Storm recovery update - Sept. 9


Para Español  - Puede seleccionar la idioma preferido en la parte superior de la página

This is the City of New Rochelle with storm recovery information for Thursday, September 9. 

First, an update on trash and debris removal.  DPW is operating on extended hours and will continue to collect waste through the weekend.  Unfortunately, regional transfer stations are overwhelmed, which means each truck must wait hours in order to dispose of its waste before returning to the field to collect more.  This is significantly delaying operations. 

As a result, this week’s paper recycling pick-up may take several days to complete.  Please keep your paper at the curb, and it will eventually be collected. 

As requested yesterday, if you were not impacted by flooding, then, if possible, please do not put out standard household and kitchen waste this week.  Limiting the waste stream will be a big help to our recovery efforts. 

Construction and demolition debris, such as building materials, drywall, and lumber, will be picked up separately.  If you have construction debris, to ensure it is collected, please call DPW at 914-235-4654. Detailed information about proper disposal of different items is available at 

Now, to repeat prior messages: 

•  Comprehensive and updated resources and links can be found at 

•  Help is available for cleaning out homes and properties from the Fuller Center for Housing.  For assistance, text 914-406-3357 or email  To learn how you can volunteer or donate to help others, visit 

•  Representatives from the Bureau of Buildings are continuing to visit impacted neighborhoods to evaluate conditions and provide information, and all City fees for repair, disposal, or construction resulting from storm damage have been waived.   

•  To apply for federal aid, visit or call FEMA at 1-800-621-3362.  We encourage you to register with FEMA, even if you’re not certain about your eligibility. 

Additional updates will follow, as our community continues the recovery process.
