TRASH/RECYCLING

Regular residential and commercial trash collection, as well as residential recycling collection has continued as normally scheduled.

  • RECYCLING COLLECTION UPDATE: Please be mindful to include only acceptable recyclables in your recycling container. Inclusion of unacceptable curbside recyclables will result in your recycling not being collected. For more information please visit: Bottles, cans and plastic recycling & Recycling Contamination
  • As a reminder Town Code permits that each home place up to 6 cans or bags of garbage (weighing 50 lbs. or less each) out on their first collection day of the week. On the second garbage day of the week each home is allowed six cans or bags of garbage and up to 4 bulk items which are items that are heavier than 50 pounds or longer than 4 feet

Other services:

  • YARD WASTE: Please limit yard waste to ten (10) bags curbside per week until further notice. There has been a significant increase in curbside yard waste due to the 24 hour, 7 day a week occupancy at almost every residence in the Town. Not only are residents performing yard clean-up projects but we have seen a proliferation of landscapers leaving their yard waste clean-up materials curbside rather than carting it away as most had previously done. The yard waste increase will result in significant financial over-runs for the Department of Environmental Waste Management; therefore a 10-bag limit of yard waste per week has been implemented. If a residence has more than 10 bags curbside a Town Sanitation Inspector will issue a Notice instructing the resident to move (or have their landscaper move) any volume in excess of 10 bags behind their property line until the next collection week.
  • The Town of Huntington Recycling Center, located at 641 New York Avenue, Huntington is open (normal hours are Tuesday-Saturday 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM). In order to limit exposure of Town personnel to residents using the drop off facility residents are requested to follow both the posted instructions as well as the directives from facility staff on when they are permitted access to the drop off areas. Questions? Call (631) 427-6377.
  • SERVICE REQUESTS: Residents are encouraged to report any sanitation related questions, service requests, and complaints online.

Questions? Contact the Department of Environmental Waste Management at (631) 351-3186 or EWM@huntingtonNY.gov

PREVENTION TIPS

As mentioned, we are sticking to the common advice during cold and flu season:

  • Wash your hands frequently and lather for at least 20 seconds before rinsing.
  • Keep yourself at least 6 feet away from others. Avoid shaking hands or greeting people with a hug. Please maintain a safe distance when grocery shopping and try to avoid shopping as a group, leave your family home if possible.
  • Wear a face mask when distancing is not possible. Download DIY instructions for making your own face mask (no-sew instructions included).
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth as the virus can enter your body this way. Cover your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze with your inner elbow or a tissue. Sanitize commonly used household items, your cell phone and high touch surfaces daily.
  • If you have fever, cough and difficulty breathing, please call your doctor or medical facility in advance of seeking medical attention to avoid possibly spreading the virus.
