The good news is that citywide trash pickup, absent since Sunday’s 20-inch blizzard, will resume Monday in areas scheduled for collection that day.
The bad news: Only if your street is clear.
“We have to get back to a normal schedule,” said Sanitation Commissioner John Doherty.
It can’t come soon enough for outer borough residents still struggling with ice-covered streets, snowed-in cars and pent-up anger.
