Landfill to hold hazardous waste collection

The Rhode Island Resource Recovery Corporation will hold a household hazardous waste collection at Central Landfill in Johnston on Saturday, Feb. 5, from 8 a.m. to noon.

Any product that is toxic, corrosive, combustible or flammable is considered hazardous waste and must be disposed of at an authorized recycler. The RIRRC holds the only free collection in the state.

Rhode Island residents may also dispose of tires, clean wood, cooking oil and batteries during the collection. Fees apply to some products. Recyclables are accepted for free.
