You may have heard recycling just got easier in Rhode Island. This is true; however, the Glocester transfer station will continue to keep our recyclables separate. It will cost us more to change the containers to accept mixed recyclables. The good news is we now accept all plastic containers up to 2 gallons. Don't worry about the number or the triangle on the bottom of the container.
So continue to do the great job you've been doing and please remember to cover your loads on the way to the transfer station. Let's keep Glocester beautiful!
For more information, call Department of Public Works at 568-5540 or visit www.recycletogetherri.org.
If you would like to get involved with your community and can spare at least one night a month, please consider joining a Board or Commission for the Town of Glocester. You must be a Glocester resident who is registered to vote with an interest in your community.
