An Important Note on Storm Drains

As you walk around the Village of Baxter Estates you may notice storm drains cut into the curb and meant to remove storm water quickly from streets and surrounding areas. These drains are meant only for rain water and snow melt (cumulatively storm water) to move through and are not trash receptacles. Anything that is poured down or placed into these drains ends up in our beautiful Manhasset Bay or in our groundwater. Do not place pet waste, leftover lawn fertilizer, used oil, food scraps, trash, or anything else into these storm drains. Pet waste can be disposed of in your trash; lawn fertilizer can be swept up and kept to be applied later. Used oil can often be returned to stores that sell motor oil.

You can also call the Town’s 311 number to inquire about hazardous material collections going on throughout the year. There is one coming up on November 8th at North Hempstead beach North lot. Certain food scraps can be composted and the rest can be thrown out in your regular garbage. Some of our storm drains are marked with a stainless steel medallion that says “no dumping, drains to bay” to serve as a reminder that only rain should go down the drain.

The Village of Baxter Estates is a member of the Manhasset Bay Protection Committee, which was formed in the 1990s to restore and protect Manhasset Bay. Committee membership is open to all local governments located in the watershed of Manhasset Bay. For more information on Manhasset Bay and how you can help protect and preserve it, visit the Committee’s website at www.manhassetbayprotectioncommittee.org
