NORTH KINGSTOWN - Recycling pays and North Kingstown has received a big fat check because of it.
Last week, Michael Oâ€™Connell, Executive Director for the Rhode Island Resource Recovery Corporation (RIRRC), distributed $1,866,562 to 39 cities and towns for profits from the sale of recyclables.
North Kingstown received $63,838.95 and those funds will be used to offset amenities at the townâ€™s transfer station, including the containers in which residents can drop their recyclables off for free and for the free use of compost.
