Earth Day Cleanups

Rhode Island is a beautiful place to call home, and we want to make sure it stays that way! Each year, in honor of Earth Day, Resource Recovery supports community litter cleanups across the state.  By waiving the fees to dispose of the litter collected by dedicated volunteers, we are able to help community groups who would otherwise be unable to conduct cleanups. If your group is planning to do a cleanup between April 1 and the third Saturday in May, you may be eligible to have your disposal fees waived. You can either work directly with your municipality to secure support through our program, or request the waiver directly from Resource Recovery. 

Please download and review our Earth Day Tip Fee Waiver Policy below. On March 1 of each year, you will also be able to download the forms you need for that year's waivers.
