Re: Earth Day Neighborhood Cleanups

Release: Immediate

The City of East Providence Department of Public Works, Refuse/Recycling Division, is sponsoring Earth Day Neighborhood Cleanups throughout the city during April. Residents are urged to volunteer some of their time to assist in cleaning the waterfront, bike path, walking trail, or open spaces throughout the City.

Rhode Island Resource Recovery Corp. will once again be waiving disposal (tipping) fees on solid waste for Municipally organized groups involved in a cleanup effort in honor of Earth Day, from April 1, 2012 to May 1, 2012. These cleanups will collectively be eligible for a tip fee waiver of 10 tons, and these 10 tons will not count against the municipality’s Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) cap.
