Town Seal

Farmingville, NY – On February 7, Brookhaven Town Councilmember Jonathan Kornreich announced that the Town will relocate the glass recycling bins from the parking lot across from the Three Village Inn in Stony Brook to the Setauket Fire Department at 394 Nicolls Rd. in Setauket-East Setauket. This new location will offer greater convenience for Town of Brookhaven residents to recycle their glass. Only glass bottles and jars are accepted and they do not need to be separated by color. Glass collected from the Town’s twelve drop-off locations is crushed and used to replace sand in construction, saving natural resources and reducing waste.

Councilmember Jonathan Kornreich said, "This project was completed thanks to the efficient teamwork of both the Setauket Fire Department and the Waste Management Team from the Town of Brookhaven. Thank you to everyone involved in making our community cleaner and greener. I encourage everyone to make full use of this resource for the well-being of both our community and the environment.
