Sanitation Commissioner John J. Doherty today reminded New Yorkers that the Department of Sanitation is continuing to register emergency snow laborers who can be called upon to remove snow and ice citywide from bus stops, crosswalks, and from step streets in sections of the City after heavy snowfalls.  Step streets are sets of stairwells located between avenues to connect streets that have a significant height differential.  The rate of pay begins at $12 per hour and increases to $18 per hour, after completing the first 40 hours, each pay week.

 

“While most snow removal duties citywide are handled by the dedicated men and women of the Sanitation Department, emergency snow laborers are a vital part of our supplemental snow-fighting efforts in major snowfalls,” said Commissioner Doherty.

 

Interested individuals can register at any DSNY garage between the hours of 7 AM to 3 PM, Monday through Friday.

 

Applicants must be over 18 years of age, be eligible to work in the United States, and capable of performing heavy physical labor.  All applicants must bring two (2) small photos (1 ½” square), and two (2) documents that prove identity and employment eligibility, such as a driver’s license; federal, state or local identification; school identification with photo, or passport, at the time of registration.

 

For more information on how to register to become an emergency snow laborer, call 311 or visit www.nyc.gov/sanitation.
