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.
