A group of New York City homeowners, known as the Bay Ridge homeowners, won a trash collections lawsuit against the City of New York Department of Sanitation (DSNY).

The Article 78 lawsuit was filed in 2017 to try to force DSNY to once again collect trash from in front of the homes of four private streets in the city, according to the Brooklyn Reporter. DSNY had stopped sending sanitation workers onto Wogan Terrace (off 94th Street), Hamilton Walk and Lafayette Walk and Barwell Terrace (off 97th Street between Third and Fourth Avenues), all located in alleyways, in March 2017 and ordered residents to haul their household trash to the closest public streets.
