Brookhaven’s New Recycling Sticker Program

Brookhaven Town’s new recycling sticker program encourages residents to recycle by making it easier to designate an appropriate recycling receptacle. Residents can now use their own receptacle with a Recycle Brookhaven label. Stickers are available for free to all Brookhaven households. Residents can also use a lidless receptacle placed at the curb recycling day or purchase a Curby can from the Town. This new program will save an average of $100,000.00 per year, advance cost efficiencies in the Town’s recycling program and offer more recycling options for Brookhaven residents. Residents who prefer to own a Curby Can still can. Curby Cans will be available for $15 at Town Hall and the Landfill.
  • Town residents can place recyclables at the curb one of three ways:
    1. A self designated existing garbage can or recycling container identified with the Recycle Brookhaven sticker provided free by the Town,
    2. A open top container containing commingled recyclables placed at the curb on a designated recycling day, and
    3. An existing Curby Can or one purchased from the Town for $15.00 each.
  • The Recycle Brookhaven stickers are free. Residents can get stickers at select Town of Brookhaven locations including Town Hall, the Brookhaven Landfill and Parks and Recreation Facilities. Stickers can also be mailed to residents upon request.
  • Residents with existing Curby Can Requisition Form (Green Card) will still be able to pick up cans at no cost until December 31, 2010
  • The new program will be effective September 1, 2010.
