There has been a surge in illegal dumping in Yonkers. Concerned citizens have voiced their outrage. Less concerned citizens have contributed to the problem.
While Yonkers DPW works diligently to keep up with the pace, the offenders work equally to flaunt the law. A corridor of Riverdale Avenue starting at Ludlow and Riverdale and ending at Prospect has become a de facto dump where residents pass oblivious to the consequences.
The gateway to Yonkers Downtown gentrification is yet another reminder of the work to be done.
