Event Organizers

The Foundation for New York’s Strongest, Inc. is the official nonprofit organization of the New York City Department of Sanitation. Supported by private funding and in-kind donations, the Foundation leverages non-traditional strategies to promote sustainability and advance the essential services Sanitation employees provide by:

  • Emphasizing New York’s Strongest as one of the City’s emergency responders and highlighting their critical, daily service;

  • Forging partnerships with private-sector organizations to move New York City toward sending zero waste to landfills by 2030; and

  • Working to establish an educational museum dedicated to DSNY’s rich history, current operations and vibrant future

The Department of Sanitation (DSNY) keeps New York City healthy, safe and clean by collecting, recycling and disposing of waste, cleaning streets and vacant lots, and clearing snow and ice. DSNY is also leading the City of New York’s initiative to send zero waste to landfills by 2030 (“0x30”), including residential food and yard waste collection and implementation of NYC’s commercial organics mandate.
