Current Sanitation Worker List
CURRENT SANITATION WORKER LIST
The normal entry-level position in the Department of Sanitation (DSNY) is Sanitation Worker. Sanitation Workers are appointed from a civil-service list. In order to be placed on the civil-service list, a candidate must pass a written exam and a physical test administered by The Department of Citywide Administrative Services (DCAS). As DSNY receives authorization to hire Sanitation Workers, it calls candidates in list-number order. Each candidate must pass a pre-employment medical exam, a background check and a driver's license check.
Under the current civil service list, each candidate must have a high school diploma, or equivalent, and a commercial driver's license at the time of appointment. Sanitation Workers must reside within New York City, Nassau County or Westchester County.
The current starting salary of a Sanitation Worker is $33,746 per year. The current labor agreement provides for periodic increases to a maximum of $69,339 following the completion of 5 1/2 years. In addition to the basic annual wages, Sanitation Workers may also earn differential payments based on their specific assignment and overtime.

Any candidate who passed the written exam # 6063 and has list # below 6,856 but was not scheduled for the physical test should visit the DCAS website for further instructions.
