The Village's single-stream recycling is being replaced by dual-stream recycling. This requires the separation of paper products, cans and plastic, and glass. It is now mandatory that recycling be separated into three bins, and the material must be clean. This means no soiled cardboard items (i.e. used pizza boxes) and no dirty cans, plastic containers, or glass bottles. Kings Park Recycling Center will not accept improperly sorted or soiled items. If your recyclables are not properly sorted or they are soiled, they will be rejected and left at your curbside at pickup time.
On Wednesday, December 12, please put out two bins:
- Bin #2: Metal/plastic containers and cans
- Bin #3: Glass containers
Our Sanitation truck will first pick up Bin #2, then in the afternoon return to pick up Bin #3.
On Wednesday, December 19, please put out one bin:
- Bin #1: Paper and cardboard
This alternating schedule will continue on successive Wednesdays.

December 7, 2018
The Village is now officially using dual stream recycling. On Wednesday, December 12th Barry will pick up metal/plastic and glass only. The following week, December 19th will be for paper/cardboard. All glass must be separated from the metal/plastic and be placed in a separate bin. The metal/plastic can be commingled in its own bin. All containers must be rinsed clean. The recycling center will not accept materials that are not properly sorted and cleaned. Therefore, the Village is unable pick up recyclables that are not clean and properly sorted. If you have any questions, please call Village Hall at 631-261-7098. I would like to thank you for your understanding and cooperation as the Village transitions into the new recycling protocol.
At the Village Board of Trustees meeting on December 4th, the Village's new full-time police officer, Patrick Rogin, was officially sworn in. Attending the ceremony were Patrick's wife, son, mom and dad. Offficer Rogin was a NYC police officer for the last five years, is a member of the East Northport Fire Department and also previously taught high school tech for two years. I expect that Officer Rogin will be a terrific addition to the Village police department and I would like to wish him all the best. At the same meeting the Village also presented letters of recognition to Officers Sid Lynn and Joe D'Alessandro for their heroism and quick thinking in putting out a shed fire during the nor’easter on October 27. Their quick action prevented the fire from reaching the house. Another great job by two of Asharoken's finest.
Please don’t forget that on Sunday, December 16th Santa and Mrs. Claus will be visiting Asharoken. The afternoon kicks off at 2:30pm with the a cappella group "Valance" singing seasonal music. This is their third year performing and they are a real treat to listen to. Santa is scheduled to arrive at 3:30pm. There will be refreshments and treats as well. This is a great event for kids of all ages and I look forward to seeing you there.
Wishing you a great weekend,
Mayor Greg Letica
