Trash and Recycling Collection Information
Relating To Snowstorm
WOONSOCKET, RI: Due to the impending storm, there will be NO trash or recycling collection on Thursday January 4, 2018.
The collection schedule will be as follows:
Wednesday’s route will be picked up on Friday
Thursday’s and Friday’s route will be picked up on Saturday
We ask that all collection carts (City serviced and privately serviced) be brought back into the property and placed back out on the appropriate collection day. There should be no carts out on the streets or sidewalks on Wednesday or Thursday.
To assist us in assisting you:
-Please shovel an area in front of your house in order to place the trash and recycling carts in a manner in which the collection trucks may be able to successfully empty the waste.
-Please place the carts 3’ apart from one another.
-Please place the carts 3’ away from telephone poles and fire hydrants.
-Please keep the covers to the carts closed to prevent snow from filling the carts. The snow adds to the weight of the waste, therefore adding to the disposal cost.
Please be patient as we attempt to collect all waste within a timely matter.
Questions can be directed to the Solid Waste Division at (401) 767-8880.
