Farmingville, NY – The Town of Brookhaven has rescheduled its sixth annual tree seedling, mulch and compost give away for Thursday, April 25. It was postponed due to heavy rain on Monday, April 22. The Thursday event will be held at the Long Island Community Hospital Amphitheater, located at 1 Ski Run Lane in Farmingville from 3-6 p.m. 

The tree seedling, mulch and compost give away is all part of Supervisor Ed Romaine’s “Greening Brookhaven” initiative to distribute and plant 10,000 trees by the year 2020. Mulch and compost are available in bags or in bulk, so residents must bring shovels and containers to load it into their vehicles. All items will be distributed on a first come, first served basis while supplies last. For more information, call 631-451-TOWN. Residents of Brookhaven Town may also pick up free mulch and compost at the following Town facilities:

Commercial vehicles are permitted only at the Brookhaven Landfill, where a fee of $12 per yard will be charged.
