Town Sanitary District No. 6 changes collection schedule


The Town of Hempstead Sanitary District No. 6 — which encompasses West Hempstead, Lakeview, Garden City South, Malverne Park, Franklin Square, Elmont, North Valley Stream and South Floral Park — is changing its trash collection schedule amid the coronavirus outbreak. 

In a flier sent to residents over the weekend, district officials said that Wednesday garbage pickup will move to Friday and Thursday pickup will move to Saturday. The Wednesday recycling collection will move to Thursday, meanwhile, and Thursday recycling pickup will remain the same.

“The health and safety of our employees and the general public is our top priority,” the flier reads. “We appreciate your understanding and cooperation during these challenging times.”
