Commercial property owners and Business Improvement Districts (BIDs) can apply to install sealed, rodent-proof containers on City property. This is through the Clean Curb pilot program. These containers are for trash and recycling collection.

These containers:

  • Keep streets and sidewalks clean and walkable
  • Make trash less accessible to rodents and other pests
  • Allow for more efficient collections

Clean Curbs participants must purchase, install, and maintain their containers.

Before applying, you should contact the Department of Sanitation (DSNY) to:

  • Express interest
  • Discuss potential locations

Learn more about DSNY’s Clean Curbs program.

If you have questions or want to express interest, email
