Do I have to separate my recyclable items?
Recyclable materials must be separated from household trash. Then all recyclable materials may be mixed together thanks to Rhode Island’s new single stream recycling program. Simply combine all recyclable items in your recycling bin or container for pick up by your commercial hauler or bring your items directly to the Rose Hill Transfer Station.
