Bye-Bye Bins and Barrels Days

On Saturday, Nov. 1 Newport residents can bring unwanted trash barrels and recycling bins to the Easton’s Beach east parking lot from 8 a.m. - noon. Because the City of Newport will start a new cart-based collection system during the week of Nov. 3 all trash and recycling must be put out in the city-issued carts in order to be collected. Residents are encouraged to reuse recycling bins for storage and barrels for yard waste, if possible. Yard waste barrels will no longer have to be labeled as such going forward.

The event will be repeated on Nov. 22. More details can be found online at cityofnewport.com/cleancity or by calling 401- 845-5613.
