CUMBERLAND — The town will receive more than $64,000 from the Rhode Island Resource Recovery Corporation (RIRRC) as part of the statewide Recycling Revenue Share Program.
Cumberland delivered 3,023.77 tons of recycled material for a total profit share of $64,838. The money will help support local recycling programs.
RIRRC is providing cities and towns with the cash rebates based on how much each municipality has increased its recycling rate. The corporation has made $1.94 million in profits from the sale of household recyclables this year, which will be disbursed to 36 communities.
