Anyone else find these offensive or is it just me. It's like they think the only way to grab our attention in utica is subliminally suggest getting overly intoxicated aka wasted. There is more to utica than varick street and getting drunk on weekends, and the city officials that came up with this marketing plan for waste pickup should realize this.

Yup, "get wasted at the curb" certainly has a different meaning and I'm sure the originators knew this. Yup, "lite up at the curb"; "get stoned at the curb"; "get wasted at the curb" WHO are they trying to kid -- are all the city officials stoned?

I agree, this isn't good representation of our city.

I agree that that commercial is offensive. Obviously there is no need to have it put that way to tell people how to dispose of their waste. The person talking in the add sounds totally crude and stupid in my opinion. Figures they would come up with something like that to try to get people's attention. Looks and sounds bad in my opinion.

Get wasted just makes utica sound like a loser city. With everything else fighting the city can't we come up with something a little "cleaner?"

That's Paul Buckley trying to spread his twisted humor around. It might work for teens but I don't think they own property in the city.
