SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 21:
FREE SHRED EVENT: The bi-annual Free Paper Shredding event is coming up on September 21st from 9AM-3PM at Town Hall.

The event is seamlessly orchestrated by our Environment & Waterways division, Municipal Services team, and Public Safety.
FREE MULCH: The Municipal Services Facility (85 Old Northport Road) has newly chipped mulch, made of recycled tree limbs of the big June 30th storm. This is a great free service to our residents to help save money on your yard cleanup.
