OLEAN, NY — The Front Street City Lot, near the intersection of Seneca Street, will be open on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. so that residents can dispose of, without charge, the brush, tree branches and tree limbs that resulted from Thursday’s storm.

The lot will be open only for Olean residents, who will be required to show identification with proof of residency. A City of Olean employee will supervise the lot. Refuse must be in paper bags; plastic bags are not permitted. Tree limbs should be cut up.

Olean Mayor William J. Aiello explained in a press release issued Friday that he decided to open the lot after surveying the city after the storm.

“Although most homes were spared and did not sustain any damage from the wind, I noticed that throughout the City many trees were downed or lost limbs,” he said. “I am pleased that our Department of Public Works will open the Front Street Facility to assist Olean residents with the disposal of this debris from the storm.”
