UTICA- The City of Utica and the Department of Public Works (DPW) officially announced they will be proposing legislation to the Utica Common Council. The proposed legislation contains a change for bulk green waste pickup.

“The current ordinance of green waste removal allows for 30 days to place unlimited amounts of containers at the curbside, we are proposing to extend that to 45 days,” said Mayor Robert Palmieri, of the City of Utica.

The current green waste ordinance has been in effect since 2005. Its pickup period last from April 15th to May 15th. According to Palmieri as of tonight, he will be extending this service for his residence one more week.

“I will allow commissioner Short to go around one more time to go throughout the city to pick up some of the green waste,” said the Mayor. “And that will start effectively tonight.”

According to the DPW, the task of keeping up the streets is tough, especially when green removal is not the only thing they are doing.

“With limited manpower every year, to come up and get the green waste, and then move onto street sweeping and potholes. It is a daunting task,” said David Short, DPW Commissioner.

“We believe if we get the compliance of our residents out there, this could be a solution to a problem that is out there,” said Palmieri.
