Department Of Public Works officials cited COVID-19 as the reason for residents experience a delay in trash pickup for weeks.

DPW said it had a total of 15 confirmed cases of COVID-19. With 10 of those who worked at the Eastern Sanitation Yard forcing a shutdown two weeks ago.

City officials said that led to a 50% reduction in curbside pickup.
