As of September 1, 2021 our recycling rules have changed

The World is turning to “Waste to Energy” (also called “Bio-mass”) to provide an environmental solution to Solid Waste disposal and the Village of Lynbrook has been at the forefront of this concept for over 10 years. There are only 71 “Waste-To-Energy” facilities in the U.S. 5 of them are now located on Long Island. “Waste-to-Energy” plants burn municipal solid waste to produce steam in a boiler that is used to generate electricity.
