YONKERS, N.Y. – Yonkers city officials are urging residents to be more vigilant about picking up waste after their dogs.

Officials from the Police, Public Works, Engineering and the Parks, Recreation, and Conservation departments launched a dog clean up awareness campaign Thursday, according to a press release.

The kickoff event was held at the intersection of Post Street and Elliott Avenue, as part of the effort to urge southwest Yonkers residents to do a better job cleaning up pet waste.

City officials will be distributing fliers to area residents; also, police and code enforcement officers will be increasing enforcement of the city’s dog waste ordinance.

Anyone who fails to pick up after their dog could be fined up to $1,500 under Yonkers city code.
