RECYCLING IN EAST PROVIDENCE AND ALL OF RHODE ISLAND
JUST GOT EASIER!!
New: it's now OK to mix your recyclables together!
No new bin is necessary - simply use what you have. Your recycled paper, cardboard, and containers will be mixed in the collection truck too. And don't worry, mixing is a good thing! The State's new recycling facility will do the rest. Now it's either recycling or it isn't. Period.
New: You can now recycle more plastics!
In fact, you can now recycle all plastic containers up to 2 gallons. Don't worry about the numbers or the little triangle. Is it a plastic container? Is it 2 gallons or smaller? If so, recycle it! This means you can now recycle plastic jars, tubs, cups, yogurt containers, egg cartons and take out containers too.
