FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

March 24, 2021

KINGSTON, NY – Mayor Steven T. Noble is pleased to announce that Uptown Kingston now has brand new trash and recycling cans for pedestrian use.

Nine sets of new trash and recycling cans have been placed near curbs on North Front, Wall, Fair, and John Streets, as well as the municipal parking lots.

“You may soon notice new trash and recycling receptacles across Uptown,” said Mayor Noble. “In response to our Uptown business owners who had requested more trash cans as well as recycling cans in the business district, our DPW delivered shiny new cans this week. With the addition of more outdoor dining and take-away options, we hope the addition of these containers will help us keep Uptown Kingston beautiful and well-maintained. This investment will also allow additional bins to be relocated to other areas of Midtown and Downtown Kingston this spring.”

The Department of Public Works will regularly empty the trash and recycling cans on Tuesdays and Fridays when possible. Residents who live in the area should be advised that the cans are not to be used for household garbage. There will be fines for those not in compliance.

As part of the Broadway Streetscape Project, Midtown will be getting new garbage and recycling cans along Broadway from the I-587 Roundabout to the Grand Street intersection at the Y.
