The town of Brookhaven is the first in the state to adopt the recycle bank program which rewards residents for taking environmental actions including recycling. The program is described as being similar to a frequent flyer program. The residents can then turn in their points for rewards from local and national business. In addition to significant environmental benefits, increased recycling also has a positive impact on Town finances through cost savings in disposal costs and revenues from the sale of recyclables.
The Green Party is an alternative party to the Democrats and Republicans. The four pillars of the Green Party are:
