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.

DeAngelo is being help on suspicion of at least four killings.        Rudy Giuliani is getting to work as a new member of President Trump's legal team. The "Washington Post" reports that he met with Special Counsel Robert Mueller [[ MULL-er ]] yesterday to talk about a possible interview with the President. Mueller reportedly expressed the importance of interviewing Trump. Giuliani also asked Mueller to clarify when he'd finish his probe of Russian meddling in the U.S. election.       The French president believes President Trump will scrap the Iran nuclear deal. Speaking to reporters in Washington, DC, Emmanuel Macron admitted that he didn't have any inside information about Trump's decision despite spending the day with him yesterday. Trump must decide whether to stay in the deal by next month.        White House budget chief Mick Mulvaney is catching heat for a remark he made to a group of bankers. Speaking about his days as a congressman, he said -- "We had a hierarchy in my office: if you were a lobbyist who never gave us money, I didn't talk to you. If you were a lobbyist who gave us money, I might talk to you." Pennsylvania Democratic Senator Bob Casey called the comments disgraceful.        Kanye West is setting the internet on fire for tweeting in support of President Trump. Today, he called Trump his brother and said he loves him because they're both "dragon energies." President Trump tweeted his appreciation for West's post, which prompted the rapper to post a picture of a phone showing Trump's replay.
