For years the Central LI Chapter held beach clean ups and events at Gilgo Beach operated by the Town of Babylon. But while every Babylon resident recycles by law at their curbside, there were no separate recycling containers on the beach at Gilgo.
The Chapter wrote to Town Supervisor Steve Bellone and requested recycling on the beach in late 2010. The Chapter was collecting signatures on a petition in the Spring when all of a sudden these beautiful new bins appeared all over Gilgo Town Beach.
