Brookhaven to commemorate Earth Day with free tree seedlings, mulch and compost

On Friday, April 21 from 3:30 pm to 5:30 pm (or while supplies last), Supervisor Ed Romaine and the Town Board will be at Town Hall to celebrate Earth Day (April 22) by holding a “Free Tree, Mulch and Compost Giveaway” as part of his “Greening Brookhaven” initiative. The goal of the initiative is to distribute and plant 10,000 tree seedlings by 2020, the same goal date for the Supervisor’s Green Energy and Sustainability initiative for Town facilities. The free tree seedlings, mulch and compost will be distributed on a first come, first served basis while supplies last. Proof of residency is required. Mulch and compost is not bagged, so residents must provide their own containers and load the materials themselves into their vehicles. Town Hall is located at One Independence Hill in Farmingville. For more information, please call 631-451-TOWN (8696).
