NEW YORK (AP / WCBS 880 / CBS 2) - New York City’s Sanitation Department says it will put more workers on the streets by reassigning supervisors and adding 100 new hires for trash and snow removal.

The moves announced Thursday will result in more than 6,000 workers available for those duties.

The city said 100 supervisory positions are being eliminated through attrition. Another 100 supervisors will be reassigned as uniformed sanitation workers.

Sanitation Commissioner John J. Doherty said the job reassignments are “difficult” but are still “far better” than layoffs.

Deputy Mayor for Operations Stephen Goldsmith said the changes will reduce administrative costs.
