IMPORTANT NOTICE ABOUT CHANGE FROM SINGLE-STREAM TO DUAL-STREAM RECYCLING IN SHOREHAM VILLAGE EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY

[Note: This notice is an adaptation and update of a Nov. 21, 2018 e-mail to Village residents by Village Clerk Cathy Donahue Spier.]

The Town of Brookhaven has changed its recycling program from single-stream to dual-stream effective on the next recycling day, Wednesday, November 28th. The Village's new carter, Quickway Sanitation 631-928-4242, discharges its collections at the Town of Brookhaven landfill, and the Village therefore falls under the Town's new dual-stream recycling system.

What this means is that everyone must separate (1) paper from (2) plastic and metal for collection on alternate weeks.

Also, the Town will not be accepting any glass.  That is correct, no glass !

As far as glass is concerned, a list of recyclable glass drop-off sites may be found at www.brookhavenny.gov/recycle. Note that the closest-to-Shoreham glass dropoff location is the Rose Caracappa Sr. Center
739 Route 25A, Mt. Sinai, NY 11766. Another dropoff location closeby to Shoreham is in Manorville-- Manorville Compost Facility Papermill Road, Manorville, NY 1194

Next Wednesday Nov 28, 2018 is plastic and metal collection day. The following Wednesday, December 3, 2018 will be paper and cardboard collection, and so forth, alternating week-by-week until further notice: Here is a link to a Dec 2018-Jan 2020 Town of Brookhaven calendar of collection with other recycling information that also applies to Shoreham Village. (But note that our carter does not do yard waste pickup in the Village even though it's on the Town calendar.)  For further information from the Town, see https://www.brookhavenny.gov/360/Curbside-Recycling .

If you have any questions, please contact the Village of Shoreham Clerk's Office. Due to the Thanksgiving holiday, the next Village office will next be open for calls or visitors on Tuesday, November 27, 2018: 631 821 0680 from 12 Noon to 3 PM.

Thank you.
