PRESS RELEASE
CITY OF WOONSOCKET
December 27, 2019
Rubbish and Recycling Holiday Pickup Schedule
On Wednesday January 1, 2020 in the observance of New Years Day the Woonsocket Material Recycle Facility will be closed and there will be no trash or recycling collection.
Curbside pick-up for trash and recycling for January 2nd through January 3rd will be delayed by one day.
TRASH and RECYCLING WINTER TIME COLLECTION
Residents are reminded that wintertime weather may delay trash and recycling collection services. Every effort will be taken to ensure prompt service however if the roadways should become a safety issue for the rubbish trucks then collection would be delayed to the following day.
Accumulated snow on sidewalks may also hamper the rubbish collection service. To ensure curbside pick-up, please shovel an area that will allow the trash and recycling carts to sit level. Cart covers should be closed preventing snow from adding to the weight of the waste.
The placement of your cart is important, since the collection vehicles lifting arm requires clearance: 3 feet on all sides and 12 feet overhead. The carts should be no more than 3 feet away from the curb or road edge, and the arrows on the lid must be pointing toward the street, with the hinges facing away from your street. Your GREEN recycling cart should be placed at least 3 feet from your BURGUNDY trash cart.
Place carts curbside on your collection day by 7 am.
Sincerely,
Michael Debroisse
Superintendent of Solid Waste

Senator Kamala [[ COMMA-lah ]] Harris is applauding Joe Biden's "audacity to choose a Black woman to be his running mate." In her first interview since becoming a VP candidate, she admits she didn't see the selection process as a competition. She also vows women will be a priority in a Biden-Harris administration.       Barack Obama says President Trump is trying to kneecap the Postal Service to help his reelection chances. During a podcast, the former President said Trump trying to stall funding is unheard of. Trump has said it's to prevent USPS from handling all the mail-in ballots.       Those who recover from coronavirus are protected for up to three months. That's how long the CDC says immunity can last. It's part of the agency's latest guidelines after a study found antibody levels could drop off over two to three months.       President Trump visited his younger brother in a New York hospital today and says he's having a hard time. Robert Trump has suffered health problems this year but his exact condition is unknown. The President was at his bedside for about 45 minutes.       Two robbery suspects are in the hospital after being shot during a smash-and-grab in a Florida mall. Police say one started smashing the glass display cases while the other tried to grab the jewelry. But a store employee pulled out his own gun and shot the men.        Three women in Louisiana are charged with attacking a teen hostess at a Chili's restaurant. The 17-year-old was enforcing coronavirus rules when she refused to sit a large group together. Kelsy Wallace says the women got so violent, she had to get five stitches.
