Town of North Smithfield

 

UPDATE: Weekend Recycling Hours           

 

The Town of North Smithfield highway garage, 281 Quaker Highway, will now begin their seasonal Saturday and Sunday hours. Saturdays, the garage will be open from 9 am - 3 pm for town residents to bring rigid plastic, scrap metal and mattresses for recycling.  Beginning Sunday, May 7, 2017 the garage will also be open on Sundays from 9 am - 3 pm until further notice.  

Yard waste is also accepted, but residents are reminded we currently offer curbside yard waste pick up right at your home. The yard waste pick up season runs from April 17th - June 9th.  We encourage residents to use this pick- up service instead of bringing yard waste to the garage.  It is easier for the resident, uses less fuel and saves the town money.
