Oyster Bay Town Councilman Chris J. Coschignano advises residents that the Town has an informative, free brochure entitled “How To Be A Good S.O.R.T., which gives a comprehensive overview of the Town’s curbside recycling program.

“Oyster Bay’s S.O.R.T. (Separate Oyster Bay’s Recyclables Today) program is one of the most successful curbside recycling programs in the nation thanks to the enthusiastic cooperation of Town residents,” Councilman Coschignano stated. “However, a successful recycling program depends on the proper separation and preparation of recyclables.

“This brochure provides residents with valuable information on which metals, glass and plastics are appropriate to place in the S.O.R.T. pail. It also provides information on how to properly prepare newspapers, magazines and mixed paper for collection.”

Councilman Coschignano noted that any resident or organization interested in obtaining a free brochure can pick up one at the Town Halls North (Oyster Bay) and South (Massapequa), the Department of Public Works (Syosset) and at major park facilities, or call or write to the Public Information Office, Oyster Bay Town Hall East, 54 Audrey Avenue, Oyster Bay, N.Y. 11771 (624-6380).
