You can report a Department of Sanitation (DSNY) garbage truck or a private carter that spilled waste and didn’t clean it up.

What You Need

You must provide your contact information and confirm if the vehicle is a white DSNY truck or a private carter.

It's also helpful to provide:

  • A description of what was spilled
  • The truck’s license plate or vehicle number

What Happens Next

The Department of Sanitation (DSNY) responds to this type of report in 1 to 2 business days.

Private carter owners will be held responsible if DSNY cleans their spills.
