You can make requests for the removal of clothing or other donation collection bins from a public street or area.
It is illegal to put publicly accessible, donated item collection bins on New York City-owned property, New York City-maintained property, a public sidewalk, or a roadway.
Bin Removal Procedure
Reported collection bins on public property will be removed as soon as possible (typically within two weeks).
The Department of Sanitation notifies the owner and allows the owner 30 days to remove the bin. The owner may be responsible for storage charges, removal charges, and civil penalties.
