Town Square







A Message from the Supervisor

“Welcome to Islip, the 3rd largest town in New York State, but with an endearing small town feel. We are so proud of our town…our beaches, golf courses, marinas, parks, housing opportunities for all, businesses, industrial parks, healthcare and educational institutions including our own Islip MacArthur Airport that provides many job opportunities. I sincerely hope you find this website helpful.” Angie


May 10th, 2024 Islip Town Supervisor Angie Carpenter celebrated the achievements of six young students from across the Township who participated and won the 4th Annual Earth Day Poster Contest, co-sponsored by Reworld Waste, formerly Covanta. This year, nearly 180 students participated in the contest, utilizing their creativity to spotlight knowledge of recycling and share its importance throughout our community. Prizes included Barnes and Noble gift cards, Nook tablets and more, all provided by Reworld Waste. The winning posters are currently on display at Town Hall West in the DEC’s 3rd floor display case.

"As we celebrate the fourth year of our Earth Day Poster Contest, I am continually inspired by the creativity and environmental awareness demonstrated by our young participants," said Islip Town Supervisor Angie Carpenter. "These students not only showcase their artistic talents but also their deep understanding of the importance of recycling and sustainability. By providing them with this creative outlet, we nurture their passion for protecting our planet and empower them to become the eco-conscious leaders of tomorrow,” added the Supervisor.

The poster contest helps drive the Town’s commitment to fostering sustainability. In addition to facilitating the Earth Day Poster Contest initiative, Recycling Educator Danielle Wynn presents recycling demonstrations to local schools throughout the year. She also provides guided tours of the Multi-purpose Recycling Facility, offering students valuable insight into the recycling process and cultivating a deeper appreciation for environmental stewardship among the Town’s youth.

Joining Supervisor Carpenter to honor the winning students included DEC Commissioner Marty Bellew, Recycling Educator Danielle Wynn, Reworld’s Lead Community Affair Specialist Maureen Early and faculty members from the students’ schools.
