Due to an ongoing investigation, this business was closed by the Marshall. Great news for the neighborhood.
I called DSNY Queens West 5 and asked when trash and recycling pickups will resume. I was told that they're working 24 hours/7 days and trucks have been picking up today and will get to whatever they can. However, if it snows they will stop making pickups in order to plow/salt the streets. This applies to everyone regardless of which community you live in.
Folks should place out their trash and recycling on their regular pickup day. If it snows, leave the pails/bags out but make sure they are kept clear of snow. When the plowing/salting is completed they will resume pickups. They will be working on Sunday too. Summonses will not be issued if trash isn't picked up.

Good morning all,
I wanted to provide you with a DOT work request number for a traffic signal request at 69th Street and 52nd Drive. This request came following last year’s one-way conversion of 70th Street and was opened following several utility work permits that were closed at this location. We expect to have results from the study this summer. Please feel free to share this work order request with others in the community. If you have any questions please feel free to reach out.
Deputy Queens Borough Commissioner
For those of you with children that applied to Maspeth High School buit did not get in please send your name and e-mail address with phone number to community activist Alicia Vaichunas, who is working on the issue:
