Protecting Our Environment

By bringing the listed residential hazardous materials to the Multi-Purpose Recycling Facility, your household can make a significant contribution to the protection of our precious groundwater supply and the preservation of the Great South Bay. Long Island depends on an underground aquifer system; improper disposal of these items can work its way down into the drinking water supply and contaminate the local waterways. Please join with us in promoting the environmental conservation of the Islip community. Together we can ensure the continued integrity of our ecosystem.
