NEW YORK — The NYC Department of Sanitation has issued a snow alert for Sunday starting at 10 a.m.

The snow alert allows the DSNY to prepare for a possible response by loading salt spreaders, attaching plows (if necessary), preparing tire chains and notifying other city agencies.

DSNY is coordinating with the Office of Emergency Management and the Department of Transportation to clear snow.

DSNY will continue to monitor forecasts and will provide updates as the snow event approaches.

All winter weather information and information about the City’s response to the storm can be found by visiting the City’s Severe Weather website at or by calling 311. The DSNY Snow 101 FAQ is also available online.
