Locations and types of refuse litter baskets tracked by DSNY
Data is collected by DSNY in order to track basket locations.
Data is collected through periodic surveys by field personnel. DSNY digitizes the locations of litter baskets using GIS software.
Each record represents the approximate location, ownership, and physical type of a single refuse litter basket.
The data can be used as an approximate assessment of the locations of litter baskets tracked by the Department of Sanitation in NYC.
"Litter basket locations are subject to frequent change, for reasons that include but are not limited to: litter basket damage, nearby construction, graffiti, or regular illegal use of basket for household or commercial waste. There is often a lag time between a change in basket type or location and the reflection of that change in this dataset.
This dataset includes information of BID-owned and Privately-owned litter baskets. Non-profit and private entities wishing to place a litter basket on a public street must receive permission from the Department of Sanitation. Location data for these baskets may be less accurate than for baskets that are owned by DSNY.
This dataset does not track public litter baskets placed by other City, State, or Federal agencies, notably including the NYC Department of Parks. Recycling baskets are also not tracked in this dataset."
The amount of salt DSNY dispenses from salt sites during a specific time period.
DSNY is responsible for the removal of snow and ice from all New York City highways and streets during and post snow storms. Salt usage data is collected daily during a snow event. DSNY spreading equipment holds 16 tons of salt.The amount of salt dispensed onto roadways is calculated based on the number of times a piece of equipment is reloaded throughout a storm citywide. Each record represents amount of salt dispensed from salt sites during a specific time period. DSNY uses salt usage data for tracking, planning, and purchasing purchases.Tracking salt usage gives DSNY a clear picture of each Borough’s usage percentage of the commodity.Some decisions that can be made with this data are:
- DSNY is able to make decisions on which Borough has an increased need based on their respective usage.
- DSNY is able to make decisions on which Borough has a lesser need based on their respective usage.
- Which Borough may be in need of more salt storage facilities.
- Which Borough needs more frequent deliveries for replenishment post storm.
At this time DSNY does not have any type of technology incorporated to track salt usage therefore there is always a chance of errors being made during data collection.
For each Community District, its Recycling Diversion rate (percentage of total municipal solid waste collected by the Department of Sanitation that is disposed of by recycling) and Capture Rate (percentage of total Paper or Metal/Glass/Plastic in the waste stream that is disposed of by recycling). For more information about DSNY's recycling programs, see: https://www1.nyc.gov/assets/dsny/site/services/recycling. Capture rate is the amount of materials set out for residential recycling collection as a percentage of designated recyclable materials in both recycling and refuse streams. This ratio measures how much of the targeted materials are actually being recycled, which is a measure of how successfully such materials are recycled. Please note that since 2013, DSNY no longer uses capture rate information. For information on what is in NYC's waste, see: http://www1.nyc.gov/assets/dsny/site/resources/reports/waste-characterization.
