On March 26, 2018, North Smithfield initiated a senior transportation program funded by a grant from The Rhode Island Human Services Department of Elderly Affairs. The program enables seniors to travel once a week from their place of residence, The Meadows, Colonial Village, Deerfield Commons or Gatewood Apartment, to three shopping locations, Slatersville Plaza, Walmart or Super Stop and Shop. Transportation is provided by Valley Transportation Corp. and includes handicap accessibility if needed. The program will run until the grant funds are depleted, approximately 6 weeks.

North Smithfield's

16th Annual Clean & Green Day 

Saturday, April 28, 2018

  Each year we assemble a large group of volunteers from North Smithfield and surrounding towns who have a mutual interest in reducing litter, and thus improving the visual landscape. While litter cleanup is the primary objective of our Clean & Green Day, this event offers additional benefits in promoting anti-litter awareness, recycling and continued education.


Save the date and come April 28th to participate in one of RI's largest community clean-up efforts. This year we plan to see as many as 500 volunteers.


Our "Hands-on cleanup" approach gives volunteers satisfaction in making a difference, as well as a sense of community by joining their neighbors in a much larger town-wide project. The experience often motivates volunteers to learn and do more in the interest of recycling and our environment year-round.  


The clean-up provides a great bonding opportunity for families and organizations to help together.  Scout troops and students are able to earn community service hours.


Volunteers can leave comments and questions, or pre-register for the event by using the Clean & Green link available at www.nsmithfieldri.org.


Donations can be made to "Town of North Smithfield/Clean & Green Day" P.O. Box 248, Slatersville, RI 02876.
