Welcome to the Web Site of the Incorporated Village of Lake Grove. This web page has been created to assist our residents while, also serving as an informational site for all those interested in the Village of Lake Grove and upcoming Village events.
Those of us that are Village residents are very familiar with the many well groomed residential developments within our Village along with some of the most beautiful parks in Suffolk County. You can take a stroll through an exquisite natural setting in Robert J. Henke Park or take a minute to reflect and honor our veterans and victims of September 11, 2001 at our newly constructed Village Green. You will also find parks that include tennis, basketball, baseball and children’s playgrounds.
Lake Grove is a very well balanced community. To compliment our pristine residential areas and parks, our residents enjoy conveniently located shopping and easy access to most major arteries and mass transportation. We are also fortunate to be serviced by three excellent school districts and protected by three very dedicated fire districts.
Our parks and roads are well maintained by one of the best staffed and equipped Department of Public works in the State.
Check this site on a regular basis to keep informed of all upcoming Village events. You will also find information on community service groups such as Lake Grove Cultural Arts Recreation and Educational Society, Lake Grove Beautification and Historical Society, and the Lake Grove Lions. If you can’t find what you’re looking for on this site, please feel free to contact us at Village Hall. You will always find our staff friendly, well informed and eager to answer your questions.

For several years now we have been notifying residents through our newsletters and other correspondence that leaves in plastic bags will not be picked up by our Department of Public Works. In years gone by, these plastic bags were picked up by our carter and brought to the landfill where the Village paid a much higher fee per ton to dispose of them.
We are now on notice from the Department of Environmental Conservation that the dumping of these bags in the landfill is in violation of the law. The carter, along with the Village is subject to penalties and fines going forward. For this reason, we now must enforce the regulation that has been deemed necessary for so many years. Leaves that are put out at the curb in plastic bags will no longer be picked up by the carter or the DPW.
Twice a year residents are permitted to come to Village Hall to receive fifty paper leaf bags. For those in need of more than the one hundred bags issued, the same type of bag can be purchased at local home improvement stores.
It has been the position of the Village Board that disposing of natural debris in plastic has never been a good practice and certainly not cost effective. Now the decision of whether or not to pick these bags up has been taken out of our hands. Leaves that have been incorrectly left at the curb in plastic bags will have to be transferred into paper bags before they can be removed by our Department of Public Works. Dates for picking up your paper bags at the Village Hall are clearly marked on your recycling calendar and on our Village web page.
Thank you in advance for your help in this matter and throughout the year.
