UTICA, N.Y. (WKTV) - Loose green waste will no longer be collected in the City of Utica this season. According to the City of Utica Department of Public Works, the loose green waste pick-up was extended for more than two weeks due to the recent storms and from this point forward, only green waste inside a container will be collected. Any residence or place of business with loose green waste in front of their property will be ticketed, the DPW stated. If you have large limbs, trees and/or a large amount of loose debris to be collected, you are asked to contact the Oneida County Solid Waste Authority at 315-731-0238 to schedule a pick-up.
