Farmingville, NY – At the January 31 Town Board Meeting, Supervisor Ed Romaine and the Town Council accepted a $2,000 check from Chris Meyers, Executive Vice President/Chief Operating Officer of Teachers Federal Credit Union (TFCU) to co-sponsor the Town’s 2019 recycling events. This is the fifth consecutive year that TFCU has partnered with the Town.

The E-Waste, Paper Shredding and Drug Take Back events are for residents to safely dispose of unused electronic devices, have their old paper documents securely shredded and to safely dispose of old prescription drugs.
