Garbage Cart

More than 1.5 million, heavy duty plastic 96-gallon garbage carts with tight fitted lids often referred to as super carts are supplied free to single-family residences and apartment buildings of four units or less. These free carts, combined with the rodenticed we strategically place deep inside rat burrows, are the key reasons for the decline of rats in our city.

Missing or damaged carts are replaced free by the Bureau of Sanitation by calling the city's service request line at 3-1-1 or click on the button below to get started online.


If you wish to request a garbage cart for new refuse collection of a newly constructed or newly rehabbed dwelling, please call 311.
