Farmingville, NY – On Saturday, May 15, Supervisor Ed Romaine (front row, fourth from right) and Councilman Michael Loguercio (second from left) joined “Curby,” the Town’s recycling mascot and volunteers from the Middle Island Civic Association for the 13th Annual Great Brookhaven Clean Up. More than 1,600 people participated in the clean-up which was held throughout Brookhaven Town. It was co-sponsored by the Town of Brookhaven’s Department of Recycling and Sustainable Materials Management, TEACHERS Federal Credit Union and Keep America Beautiful, Inc. The Annual Great Brookhaven Clean Up is part of a national effort that draws nearly 2.5 million volunteers in more than 15,000 communities across America who come together to pick up litter, renew parks, and clean miles of roadway, rivers, lakes, and seashore.
Supervisor Romaine said, “Thank you to all of the volunteers who participated in this year’s Great Brookhaven Clean Up. This annual event is always a great success due to the efforts of devoted community members who have dedicated themselves to keeping Brookhaven clean. Although it was canceled last year, we were happy to see so many people return again.”
Councilman Loguercio said, “The Great Brookhaven Clean-up is an opportunity for Brookhaven residents to work with their neighbors and help clean-up their communities. It’s great that people of all ages participate and show how much they care about making Brookhaven a cleaner and more beautiful place to live.”
