Mill Brook Civic Association

Spring 2016 Volunteer Planting Day. Thanks to all!

Special thank you to Trish Vanderbeck for her guidance and expertise, and all the students from South High and Forest Road who came out to pitch in with great community spirit. See more photos from the Spring 2016 Planting Day.

Seeking New Board Members

The Mill Brook Civic Association is looking for community residents to add to our board. If you have two hours a month to share and enjoy working on a team, please consider joining us at one of our monthly board meetings to see what we do. You can do it too. If you enjoy living in Mill Brook, ask yourself why. Is it because there’s a real feeling of neighborhood? Is it because there’s a dedicated association that plans concerts, supports picnics, and organizes beautification projects? A group that holds meetings to keep the community informed, liaisons between police, local government, and the mall that borders us? If you want to be a part of the bigger picture, please send an email to the Membership Committee under the Contact Us link. We’re your neighbors and we’d love to hear from you. Even better, see you.

News/Current Events

Notice from Sanitation District #1

Sanitation has begun a new recycling program, and also altered our regular pickup schedule. Notices were hung on doorknobs throughout Mill Brook, but in the event you misplaced or did not receive yours, the information can be found here. In addition, their website has an interactive feature that allows you to enter a street name (example: Woodland, Cloverfield, Southgate) and you are shown a calendar marked with your pickup dates. Go to and click on What Day is My Pickup? If you no longer have a yellow recycling receptacle, call 516-239-5600 to request one. For specific issues with Sanitation, call George Pappas at (516) 996-0057.
