Litter Control in Olean

August 12, 2014 Olean - William J. Aiello, Mayor of the City of Olean, would like to commend the City of Olean Neighborhood Improvement Committee for all their efforts in controlling the on-going litter problem in our community.

“The Committee’s efforts are non-stop during the summer. The members of the Committee attack the litter in both our neighborhoods and in our main business district. The City is very lucky to have this organized group keeping our streets clean.” Mayor Aiello said.

“On the Committee’s behalf, I would like to stress the importance of taking down lawn sale or any other handmade signs following an event. In addition, this type of sign should not be placed on utility or light poles. These signs have to be placed on private property” Mayor Aiello added.

“I would also like to remind our residents who use the Weston’s Mills Transfer Station that their loads should be tied down when travelling through the city. The Committee has frequently noticed that trash and debris, intended for the transfer station, gets scattered about our neighborhoods after falling out of a truck.” Mayor Aiello continued, “I have asked the Olean Police Department to issue tickets for loads that are not covered.”

“All residents in Olean can help to keep our streets clean. Taking down a sign after your lawn sale has ended or securing your load for the Transfer Station are excellent steps in preventing litter in our community.”
