Clinton Examines Garbage Policies
The Village of Clinton Board met Monday evening to discuss new business.
The meeting was held without public attendance as a safety measure due to the rising Covid-19 infections in the area.
The Department of Public Works removed 10 loads of waste weighing 20.89 tons to Oneida/Herkimer Solid Waste transfer station. Ten tires were removed and three loads of metal were recycled weighing 3.42 tons.
Fifty-three loads of mixed yard waste were removed.
The Park and Business District have been decorated for the Holiday season.
The last day of the year for Green waste pickup is Dec. 15. The Board is encouraging residents to get their waste ready for removal ahead of that time and also to put what's being picked up on the sidewalk, not in the street.
Village of Clinton Mayor Steve Bellona thanked DPW Superintendent Robert Rockwell and his team for the excellent job on the Christmas lights and decorations.
The DPW gave a big thank-you to Rick Sherman of New Hartford for sending extra trucks to help with leaf removal in the village and a thank you to the Town of Kirkland Highway Department for use of the lift.
