Dispose of hazardous household waste at Central Landfill
R.I. Resource Recovery Corporation will hold eco-depot and electronics recycling collections on Saturday, Sept. 18, and Saturday, Sept. 25. Both are scheduled from 8 a.m. to noon at the Central Landfill at 65 Shun Pike in Johnston.
The household hazardous waste and e-waste collection program is a free service for R.I. residents.
Most electronic waste – televisions, computers, monitors, printers, keyboards, laptops, CPUs, zip drives, scanners, modems and mouse devices – cannot be placed in the trash or recycled in R.I.’s curbside program.
At no charge, RIRRC will accept household hazardous wastes – such as oil-based paints, propane gas tanks and fluorescent light bulbs – and safely dispose of them so that they will not pose a threat to the environment. Visit www. rirrc.org for a complete list of eligible materials or to book an appointment.
Appointments are not necessary for recycling e-waste.
