Assemblyman Phil Goldfeder (D-Far Rockaway) and Councilman Donovan Richards (D-Far Rockaway) joined the JCCRP in announcing extra city services for the Rockaway community pre-holiday needs.

“It is great to see city agencies working together to carry on the traditions and cultures of our community in Rockaway. I commend NYC Department of Sanitation, NYC Parks Department and the FDNY for their honorable service to our families,” said Assemblyman Phil Goldfeder

“I am very happy to announce in conjunction with Assemblyman Goldfeder and JCCRP that preparations are under way for Passover. I also would like to thank the Department of Sanitation for really stepping up in order to help everyone celebrate Passover safely. I hope that everyone has a very safe and enjoyable Passover,” said Councilman Donovan Richards

The Department of Sanitation will conduct additional garbage collections in anticipation of Pesach. On Erev Pesach, Monday April 14, 6–11 a.m. In addition to the extra collections throughout the neighborhood, there will also be a stationary sanitation truck at the corner of Beach 6th Street and Hicksville Road in Far Rockaway.

To accommodate the anticipated large amount of trash, please place garbage out by midnight on Sunday the 13th and put out any items for pickup that you are able to during the prior week which will speed up the completion of the routes on Monday. To speed up collection on Monday, use plastic bags where possible. The Sanitation Department will make every effort to complete this task by 11:00 a.m., Goldfeder noted.

Additionally, the Jewish Community Council of the Rockaway Peninsula encourages area residents to exercise caution during their preparations for the upcoming holiday. Due to the safety concerns for our area residents, the JCCRP has arranged a centralized location for a communitywide chametz-burning, under the supervision of the FDNY. Chametz may be brought on April 14, from 9:00 to 11:00 a.m., to the paddleball courts at Lanett Playground on Lanett Avenue. v
