City tries out free trash bins

April 5, 2011

WOONSOCKET — The city has teamed up with a private startup company from Grafton, Mass., in an effort to increase recycling in the downtown business district.
Michael Debroisse, the city's solid waste superintendent, said the city has replaced a half-dozen traditional garbage cans between Market and Depot squares with specialized recycling bins provided by Go Green Solutions.
The bins, which cost the city nothing, are designed with three color-coded deposit slots — green for paper, blue for cans and bottles, black for non-recyclable waste.

Woonsocket cop honored for saving man's life

WOONSOCKET — Tears streamed down the man's cheeks as he stood on the railing of the Hamlet Avenue Bridge, thinking about the end.
Patrolman Kevin Sanford saw the dog leash looped around the man's neck. The hasp was clipped on so that if he jumped the leash would cinch around the man's neck from his body weight. The other end of the leash was tied around the lower rung of the bridge railing.
