WOONSOCKET â€” Say so long to the blues â€” blue trash carts, that is.
The familiar 64-gallon bins will begin disappearing from sidewalks after next weekâ€™s trash collection rounds begin on Monday. Their burgundy and green companion bins will be left behind as the longstanding trio of the cityâ€™s waste pickup formula is broken up for good.
Deemed obsolete in the age of single-stream recycling, the blue bins â€” an estimated 10,300 of them in all â€” have been sold off to the neighboring town of Cumberland for $14 each.
