Who’s collecting my recycling?

Contrary to what many people think, we (RIRRC) are not the people picking up your waste and recycling. Your city or town (or property manager if you live in a larger apartment complex) is responsible for your bins, carts, and collection.  In some cases they provide the service directly, and in other cases, they hire a private waste hauling company to do this for them.  Any time you have a question regarding your bins, carts, or collections (including special item collections), please contact your Department of Public Works.
