[ARCHIVED] Changes to solid waste and recycling

To combat rising levels of contamination, Rhode Island Resource Recovery Corporation (Resource Recovery) today announced shredded paper will no longer be accepted in Rhode Island’s mixed recycling program. While shredded paper is being discontinued curbside, Resource Recovery will continue to accept shredded paper, secured in a bag, at their self-serve Small Vehicle Area (SVA) located at 65 Shun Pike in Johnston. In addition to the drop-off container, Rhode Island residents can attend shredding events, compost shreds in backyard compost bins, or dispose of them in the regular trash.


As of July 1, 2017, the Rose Hill Regional Transfer Station (RHRTS) will be increasing the cost of bagged household waste from $1.80/tag to $2.00/tag and are sold in sheets of 5. Tags expire June 30th of each year. Tags can be purchased at the RHRTS or South Kingstown Town Hall during regular business hours.
