Help Clear Snow and Ice After Winter Storms

New York City Sanitation Commissioner Kathryn Garcia announced that early registration has begun for emergency snow laborers for the upcoming snow season. Snow laborers are per diem workers who are called upon to remove snow and ice citywide from bus stops, crosswalks, fire hydrants and step streets in the City after heavy snowfalls.

Snow laborers will be paid $13.50 per hour, and $20.25 per hour after 40 hours are worked in a week, an increase from the previous year.

“While the uniformed men and women of the Department of Sanitation (DSNY) concentrate their efforts on city streets, Emergency Snow Laborers are vital to keeping the city moving after heavy snowfalls,” said Commissioner Garcia. “Their help, in targeting the city’s thousands of crosswalks, fire hydrants and bus stops, allows for the quicker removal of snow in the areas pedestrians frequent.”

Individuals interested in registering with the DSNY can do so at their local district garage, weekdays between 7 a.m. and 3 p.m. The list of garage locations can be found at DSNY Homepage.

Applicants must be at least 18 years of age, be eligible to work in the United States, and capable of performing heavy physical labor.

All applicants must bring:

  • Two small photos (1 ½ square)
  • Original and copy of two forms of identification
  • Social Security card

Individuals may also register at select Department of Transportation (DOT) locations (see below). The offices will be open Monday through Friday, from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. and require the same photographs and identification.
