After 9/11, the New York Department of Sanitation worked to clear the streets around the perimeter of Ground Zero. Personnel removed crushed cars, debris, and other large obstacles to allow passage of emergency crews and construction equipment heading to the site. DSNY also assisted with the forensic operation at Fresh Kills Landfill on Staten Island.
