7/30/2015 - Recycling rate rebate
Congratulations! East Providence reached a MRF (Materials Recycling Facility) recycling rate of 25.64% in FY15, which means that the city will receive a tip fee rebate of $1 per ton of trash disposed, a total of $13,656.00. Per Rhode Island Resource Recovery Agreement, for recycling over 25% of your waste, the city pays less per ton and receives the tip fee rebate, which will be credited on our August or September invoice, for disposal costs.
