Brookhaven Establishes Drop-Off Areas for Brush Debris

A special collection date for yard waste has also been set up.

Brookhaven residents can drop off tree debris, limbs and other yard waste at one of four sites the town has opened to accept yard debris in the aftermath of Hurricane Irene.

A town spokeswoman said Tuesday that Percy Raynor Park in Setauket, the Holtsville Ecology Center, the town landfill in Yaphank and the Manorville compost facility are accepting resident drop-offs as long as the debris is bundled. According to the town, bundling is required for the town to receive .

In addition, the town has set a special yard waste collection date next week. Instructions from the town include bundling the debris and putting it out on Sunday night and it will be taken away according to an internal schedule of pickup.

FEMA does not require that brush or trees be bundled for removal, Fema pays 70.00 dollars per hour for Such removal by the town using any means possible. It is clear this mis statement of Fema policy is to attempt to reduce Town expences using existing garbage routes instead of Union labor by the town. Bundling is impossible for most tree debris. The Town should remove the Town workers from Dunkin Donuts then work will proceed

You hit it on the head. Nice. It's only a matter of time til a kid heading to school gets clipped by a car because of the limited site one has traveling past such debris. Smith town and Huntington and Riverhead have all began using dump trucks and loaders to fix their towns debris issue.
