“WHERE DOES YOUR NEWPORT GARBAGE GO?”

 Switching to Single Stream Recycling

 A Public Forum sponsored by Alliance for Livable Newport and The Newport Energy & Environment Commission

The Alliance for Livable Newport will hold a Public Forum to introduce the new “single-stream” sorting and recycling system being implemented in Newport beginning in June 2012. “Single Stream” will allow households to combine their recycling into one container rather than separating it.

 The Forum will also explain how to reduce difficult items in the waste stream (such as paint, mattresses, light bulbs, batteries, etc.) and discuss new ways of sharing the burden of managing solid waste among Newport residents, the City and the producers of hard to handle waste which is filling up the Johnston landfill at increased costs to towns and municipalities.

Speakers will include:

Sarah Kite, Director of Recycling Services, Rhode Island Resource and Recovery Corp

Kristin Littlefield, Clean Cities Coordinator, City of Newport

Ellie Leonardsmith, RI Clean Water Action

Victor Bell, President, Environmental Packaging International
