The City of Utica’s Department of Public Works announces that the Annual Spring Green Waste Pick-Up will officially begin on April 17th. Starting Monday, April 17th, residents can place non-containerized green waste at the curb. Allowable bulk green waste items include grass clippings, leaves, weeds, flowers and bundled limbs and branches no longer than 4’ and under 50 lbs.
Items such as shrubs, stumps, logs, and trees are not allowed. If residents have these large green waste items they can call Oneida-Herkimer Solid Waste Authority at 315-731-0238 to schedule a pickup (a nominal fee is charged for this service).
Residents are cautioned not to put out waste for collection before April 17th. Households not complying with that regulation face a possible citation.
