Dear Residents:

As you all may be aware, as of November 28, 2018, the Town of Brookhaven will be reverting back to the dual-stream recycling program that was discontinued in 2014. 

In the Village, we will continue to have recycling pick up every Wednesday for paper, cardboard, metal cans and plastics but the recycling will have to be separated.  Newspapers, cardboard and paper products must be kept separated from the cans and plastics.

Glass bottles and jars are no longer accepted with curbside recyclables.  You can drop off free of charge at one of Brookhaven Town’s satellite locations listed below or return them to the locations where purchased for your deposit refund.

Brookhaven Town Hall – 1 Independence Hill, Farmingville, NY  11738

Brookhaven Landfill – 350 Horseblock Road, Brookhaven, NY  11719

Manorville Compost Facility – Papermill Road, Manorville, NY  11849
