YONKERS, NY – December 30, 2020 – Yonkers Mayor Mike Spano, along with Department of Public Works Commissioner Tom Meier, today announced “Recycling Reminders” for Yonkers residents throughout the remaining holiday season. Beginning Monday, January 4th and ending Friday, January 8th, residents may leave their bare, Christmas trees out with their garbage to be picked up for proper environmental composting. Residents also may bring trees to the City’s Organic Yard at 610 Nepperhan Avenue between 7am-3pm, Monday-Saturday.

“The holiday season produces additional opportunities to recycle,” said Mayor Spano.  “Our DPW crews and services are ready and able to assist our residents clean up from the whirlwind of the holiday season and start the new year on a clean slate.”

  1. Unfortunately there is no leadership in the wings. The City Council should abolish term limits completely and have the voters decide who should be there next Mayor.

  2. More insults from this sham of a mayor. Lecturing residents about the importance of recycling while he and his grubby family and friends network rape and pillage this city. Remember when he told us in 2011 that nepotism and cronyism were a problem and that he would put an end to it? Remember when he told us that there were too many city vehicles and that he would reduce the fleet? I hope he leaves for county executives and takes that rancid waste pile in city hall with him.

  3. What this mayor, along with the city council, pulled earlier this year regarding the term limits, is one of the most disgraceful and insulting things I have ever witnessed. It’s bad enough that the entire thing was simply meant to serve themselves, but to do it without letting Yonkers residents at least vote on it was even more reprehensible. Everyone who was a part of this now has zero credibility, not that they care anyway. What a bunch of sleazeballs.

    1. Busy day on Propaganda Patrol, Mr Communications director??

      It’s time to recall this Spanner in his illegal Turd term as Mayor with the others on the Silly Council who also stole an extra term for themselves.
