- City Claim to file a claim for accidents involving other City vehicles, or to check the status of a submitted claim
You can file a claim if you have been in an accident with any Department of Sanitation (DSNY) vehicle (such as a garbage truck, snow plow, or other Sanitation vehicle). You can also file a claim if your property has been damaged by any DSNY vehicle.
You must first call DSNY so they may investigate the incident and provide you with a claim form.
Claim forms must be submitted within 90 days of the accident.
