Due to a change in market conditions we will still collect all recycling on your current day. We would appreciated if you can separate your cardboard from your other recycling and just place it alongside the pail. There will be two different trucks picking up your recycling on the same day. If you have any questions please call us @ (516) 599-8838 – THANK YOU


The mission of the Lynbrook Village Public Works Department is to deliver services that will continually enhance and improve the quality of life to all residents, property owners and travelers within the Village boundaries. We strive to provide solid waste management, the maintenance and construction of a functional road network, along with the care to all public infra-structure facilities. This commitment will be accomplished in a timely, professional, cost-efficient utilization of allotted physical, financial and human resources.

Tree removal permits are required when a tree is being removed from the curb strip.
Please contact the Department of Public Works to obtain this permit.
