Spano_Mike Yonkers, NY — Assemblyman Mike Spano (D/C/WF-Yonkers) is reminding Yonkers residents that Household Recycling Day will take place on September 12 at the County Recycling Center on Stew Leonard Drive from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Residents may drop off household waste that cannot be set out for curbside collection or recycling. The event is free-of-charge.  

“I encourage residents to take advantage of Yonkers Household Recycling Day to get rid of garbage in an environmentally friendly way,” Spano said. “This event will help reduce pollution in Yonkers, protecting our families and preserving the natural treasures in our area for future generations.” 

The following items will be accepted: automobile fluids (antifreeze, break fluid, gasoline), flammable liquids (kerosene, butane, charcoal fluid), metal, jewelry, furniture polishes, wood preservatives, pesticides, insecticides, swimming pool chemicals, fluorescent light bulbs, fire extinguishers, propane tanks, batteries, air conditioners, mercury thermometers, washers, dryers, freezers, stoves, refrigerators, car tires (10 maximum), pharmaceuticals and plastic grocery bags. 

Electronic waste such as computer monitors, TV’s, computer towers, printers, fax machines, cell phones and small appliances will also be collected. For information on how to dispose of an item not accepted at Household Recycling Day, residents should call the Westchester County Recycling HelpLine at 211. 

“If these items end up in landfills they can contaminate water and air, endangering the health of our families,” Spano said. “Household Recycling Day is an excellent opportunity for residents to do a ‘fall clean-up’ and dispose of unwanted items in their homes without harming our local environment.” 

This year Assemblyman Spano was appointed chair of the Legislative Commission on Toxic Substances and Hazardous Wastes, which promotes eco-friendly management of dangerous materials in New York. As chair he will review government agencies and programs that deal with the prevention, management, disposal and cleanup of toxic substances and hazardous waste.

  3. Look at the article above this one, Yonkers is a crumbling mess, and your worrying about Recycling Day?
    Its leaders like Mikey that ruined this city.

  4. Mr Spano the event on that day maybe free of charge. We the taxpayers have already paid for it. It is our tax dollars that pay for this stuff so do not use the words free of charge nothing the government dose is free for us taxpayers!
