  • The Environment


Importance of recycling4 l.jpg
Importance of Recycling

Save Money for Your Town:

  • Your hometown pays $32 a ton for every ton of trash it disposes in the Central Landfill

  • Recyclables are disposed of free of cost to you

  • The more you recycle, the less taxpayer dollars have to be spent


Importance of recycling5 l.jpg
Importance of Recycling

The Cap:

  • Every city and town receives an allocation on the number of tons of trash it can dispose, which is called the “cap.”

  • If your hometown exceeds its cap, it must pay $52 for every ton over the limit – and increase of $20 per ton!


Importance of recycling6 l.jpg
Importance of Recycling

Save Landfill Space:

  • Almost all of RI’s trash ends up in the Central Landfill in Johnston.

  • It is important to preserve the existing space for non-recyclable, non-toxic waste.

  • Communities should aim for at least a 20% recycling rate to avoid a “garbage crisis.”


Importance of recycling7 l.jpg
Importance of Recycling

Civic Pride:

  • Living in a community means taking care of it, collectively and individually.

  • Participating in a program that benefits the entire state is one way to demonstrate your commitment to the well-being and livability of Rhode Island.


Importance of recycling8 l.jpg
Importance of Recycling

The Environment:

  • The more waste we create, the worse it will be for the future of the Earth.

  • Recycling can reduce the amount of raw materials like petroleum and timber we consume.

  • Recycling helps conserve energy since it requires less energy to make recycled products than non-recycled ones.
