Trash Delay – Items NOT Permitted in Regular Trash

Attn Brookhaven Residents: The municipal’s trash hauler BB&L, had a truck held up today Wed. 1/30/19 at the trash transfer station because someone put either used tissues, disposable underwear or something they used while they are on nuclear medicine treatments. They call this a ”Hot Load.” This will put one trash truck out of service for today. Once the truck is released, they will sent the truck to a land fill in Bristol to be unloaded. Although they are down one truck down, they hope to have all trash picked up today. Please help us get the word out that no NUCLEAR MEDICINE items may be put into the regular trash. Patients should ask their doctor about the proper disposal of any nuclear medicine items. THANK YOU!
