What a Mess: Dumping on Port Chester

Do you know of a dumping ground that needs to be cleaned up? Tells us about it in the comments, upload photos of the mess.

There are lots of signs posted in the parking lot at the rear of 140 Midland Ave. in Port Chester, but it doesn't look like anyone is paying attention to the bright yellow signs.

Tucked in a back corner of the lot, along the railroad embankment, clothing donation bins are surrounded by piles of trash and assorted debris. The bins, still new looking with their bright white and green paint job, stand out in stark contrast to the junk piled around them.

Port Chester Mayor Dennis Pilla, when alerted to the dumping, said he would have the village check out the problem.

Do you know of more dump sites that need to be cleaned up? Tell us about them in the comments area below. Also, upload your photos of local dumping grounds that are creating a blight.

there are several areas that need attention in this Village, the Broad st area close to Pearl st, parts of Midland Ave, train depot area, just look around - this is terrible and should not be allowed to contunue I would love to know how long this has been like this

Midland Avenue ... between Rye and the Waterfront is a horror. Broad Street and Pearl are right behind. The strange station looks abandoned ... saved for those who have to endure its ugliness. To be fair, much of Main Street is lookin' up. New trees and store fronts. Lots of exciting plans in the works. The common areas ... especially the parks ... look great. Progress. Slow progress. But we can do more. And we have to.

Port Chester Train station property is loaded with garbage and debris left behind by both the MTA and careless citizens. A couple of complaints to MTA yield little result almost no improvement.

Main Street is definitely looking up. I like the new awnings and signage a lot of stores have now. Slowly, but surely. Midland is pretty ugly. As strange as it sounds to say, maybe the Beer Garden that's coming to the train station in 2013 will mean a cleaner area.

I was going to Staples last week and there was a woman in an SUV in front of me making a turn into the lot from US1 and just as she was turning she threw a crumpled up brown paper bag out of her window. I wish I had a camer mounted on my dash.

Be persistent wit the MTA and you will get results. Don't know if Ted Bowen is still a good person to talk to in customer service but he helped me. They are responsible but negligent until pestered.
