WOONSOCKET – On Wednesday January 1, in the observance of New Years Day the Woonsocket Material Recycle Facility will be closed. A complete listing of accepted items for free can be found on the City of Woonsocket’s Web site under Solid Waste.
Curbside pick-up for trash and recycling for January 1st, 2nd and 3rd will be delayed by one day.
Residents are reminded that wintertime weather may delay trash and recycling collection services. Every effort will be taken to ensure prompt service however if the roadways should become a safety issue for the rubbish trucks then collection would be delayed to the following day.
Accumulated snow on sidewalks may also hamper the rubbish collection service. To ensure curbside pick-up, please shovel an area that will allow the trash and recycling carts to sit level. Cart covers should be closed preventing snow from adding to the weight of the waste.
The placement of your cart is important, since the collection vehicles lifting arm requires clearance: 3 feet on all sides and 12 feet overhead.
The carts should be no more than 3 feet away from the curb or road edge, and the arrows on the lid must be pointing toward the street, with the hinges facing away from your street. Your recycling cart should be placed at least 3 feet from the burgundy cart.
Place carts curbside on your collection day by 7 a.m.
