Smithtown elected officials have agreed to utilize savings from the town's new garbage carting contracts to upgrade the town's landfill to a "state-of-the-art" facility. 

Smithtown town board hired Brookhaven-based contractor L.K. McLean associates to provide professional services overseeing the design and upgrades to Montclair Avenue landfill at a cost of $99,350, Times of Smithtown reports. 

The town will use $500,000 a year in savings for the next 7 years from the new garbage carting contracts signed in August 2013 to upgrade the Montclair facility, offering a total budget of $3.5 million. 

This savings primarily comes from the town's requirement that all garbage carters use trucks that operate using natural gas - one of the first Suffolk townships to do so since 2007. 

Supervisor Patrick Vecchio said the upgrades will turn Montclair into the "state-of-the-art" facility over the next 8-9 months and include the purchase of scales.
