It smells like manure every evening up in south utica. I think it is from outlying farms. Of course, there are also the morons that light fires in this weather and the smoke hangs in the air choking the breath out of anyone within a mile of it--but hey, you know, this is utica and no one in any position of power will do anyone to uphold the law. Some of them are the worst abusers of causing a stink.

Technically, calling city employees only increases the cryptic stench levels.

Living in a working farm area, I find this thread hilarious.

We have working dairy barns, corn fields nurtured with manure, dogs all over, frequent bon fires and barbecues burning all around for miles and miles.....no bad smell here.

Utica stinks because...it's Utica.

It's The Oneida County Recycling And Waste Facility on Leland Ave. That's were they bring all of Utica's trash.

I have been wondering about this for several years. At one point I thought it might be some type of industrial discharge from the box factory on Campion Rd but they're closed now and we still get the stench, especially in the early morning (2-3AM) hours. I think the Scooby Doo place is a little too far away to be the source. I think both St E's and St Luke's incinerate and dispose of some of their hazardous waste...could that be it? On some nights it is so bad I can't leave my windows open.

I live in s utica as well and it has always smelled like fertilizer to me--but it doesn't make any sense that a farmer would be fertilizing at this time of year. I can't keep my windows open either. The stink seems to come from the west. But good thinking on the hospital waste. I never thought of that and we are close enough for that to be a possibility. I don't know who would listen if we complained about the air quality here--maybe the EPA. It's worth a shot.

The sewer system really is bad and stinks. Oriskany Blvd smells like dead humans, unbearable odor. And the mayor stinks too.
