Special yard waste pickup in Brookhaven

Brookhaven residents who want to dispose of tree branches and leaves left in their yards by Tropical Storm Irene can leave them bundled at the curb for a special yard waste pickup next week, the town said.

The waste must be placed on curbs Sunday night.

Town Supervisor Mark Lesko said the waste must be bundled; if it’s not, the town will not be reimbursed by the Federal Emergency Management Agency for the collection, he said.

Residents can also take yard waste to four town sites: Percy Raynor Park on Nesconset Road, the town landfill in Yaphank, the Holtsville Ecology Center and the Manorville compost site.
