Sanitation Survey | The NYC Comptroller’s office wants to hear about the quality of sanitation services in your neighborhood. Click here to take the survey, and you’ll be able to provide feedback on matters including organic waste collection, the relative cleanliness of your neighborhood, and whether or not the past year has seen you deal with issues such as missed trash collection, overflowing street litter baskets, illegal dumping, rat infestation, derelict vehicles, or a sidewalk obstructed by trash. To visit the office of NYC Comptroller Brad Lander online, click here.
