City / Town Contacts

Below you will find an alphabetical list of RI’s cities and towns along with details on what services are provided to residents. Resource Recovery does not provide bins or carts to individuals, and does not manage your collection service or local drop-off facility. If you have a question about bins, carts, collection, or local drop-off facilities please reach out directly to your city or town using their contact information below. You’ll also find more information on local programs by visiting the link to your city or town’s website as well as its A-Z list hosted by Resource Recovery.
