Mayor Menard's Page






On July 2, 2007, the City of Woonsocket  introduced a new recycling program for one, two and three unit homes.   This page will be updated frequently so be sure to check back often.  Thank you and remember, recycle today for a cleaner tomorrow!

As of July 1, 2007, builders of all new 1, 2 or 3 family houses will be required to purchase the appropriate number of solid waste and recycling carts at the builders' expense. 

Each unit will need one set (consisting of three carts) for a total cost of $120.00 

Payment will be accepted in the Public Works Office, Monday through Friday from 8:30 am to 3:30 pm. 

New residential buildings consisting of more than 3 units are required to contract a vendor to properly pick up and dispose of their solid waste and recycling materials. 

Questions can be directed to (401) 767-8880 or email to: mdebroisse@woonsocketri.org
