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.  If you have a group that will be participating in this year’s cleanup please call the office for a Registration form for you group.  All groups must be registered prior to cleanup events.

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, 2013 to May 12, 2013.  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.

If you  are interested in helping with one of the already registered groups please contact  the Dept. of Public Works/Recycling office at 435.7701 or 435.7710.
