Did you know? Recycling & trash tidbits from Newport


Recycle Together RI: RIs NEW recycling program that allows RI residents to mix everything in one bin and recycle many more plastics. Visit www.RecycleTogetherRI.org for more information, or see the inside of this calendar. Do you need help recycling at your home or business?
If you need a little help figuring out what to recycle in your home, the Clean City Program can help. Give us a call at 845-5613 and wed be happy to go over materials with you over the phone, or stop by in person to help you sort through commonly-used items in your home. The City of Newport now offers a small business recycling program for businesses and buildings with over 8 dwelling units. Call the Clean City Program at 845-5613 for more information.

Recycling saves tax dollars! Every ton of trash costs the city $32, but recycling is free! Newport residents threw away 7,485 tons of trash and recycled 2,204 tons curbside in fiscal year 2012. We recycled 22.7% of our waste. RI state law requires us to recycle 35% of our waste. Newport avoided $70,528 in tipping fees by recycling 2,204 tons of material in FY12.

Everything dropped off for recycling to the Clean City Program such as electronic waste, books, clothing, motor oil, cooking oil, scrap metal, or recycled at one of our Recycling Day events, contributes to the citys diversion rate. RI state law requires all municipalities to divert 50% of their waste. With your help, we diverted over one third of our material (36%) which was reused or recycled, avoiding a life in the landfill! Thank you for doing your part by reducing, reusing and recycling as much as possible! We cant do it without you!

What do I do with usable items?


DONATE IT! There are many Newport & RI based organizations that can accept hard-to-recycle items and may be able to pick it up at your home. Visit the Clean City Programs website for list of organizations. GIVE IT AWAY TO A GOOD HOME! Ask a neighbor, visit the RI Exchange at freexchangeri.org, post it on Freecycle (search for Freecycle, select RI & Newport), or use Craigslist: providence.craigslist.org. SELL IT! Use Craigslist to sell it, or have a yard sale: contact the Newport City Clerks office to obtain a yard sale permit by calling 845-5340 or 845-5342.

Thank you, Newport, for helping us recycle more & more each year!
