That’s nearly nine percent of the 23,000 Department of Sanitation trash cans that dot street corners across the five boroughs.
They were removed from neighborhoods that have seen protests or where unrest is anticipated, officials said.
“Removing baskets is standard practice during some large events like New Year’s Eve celebrations, parades, and the like,” added Sanitation spokesman Joshua Goodman.
He said the cans will be returned in the coming days.
