Farmingville, NY – – On December 8, Councilwoman Jane Bonner (right) presented a compost tumbler to Ann Marie Kelleher from Ridge, one of six winners of the “Brookhaven Recycles Day” Compost Tumbler Giveaway. The online contest was held on the Town’s Facebook page with a winner selected from each Town Council District. For more information about recycling in the Town of Brookhaven, visit the Town website.

Through Supervisor Ed Romaine’s Green Energy and Sustainability Initiative, the Town has been “greening-up” its operations and facilities while saving taxpayer money by utilizing new, and more energy efficient technologies and renewable energy sources. All these efforts lower operation costs and reduce Town carbon emissions. By encouraging waste diversion through recycling and composting, the Town can further realize spending and emissions reductions.
