NORTH KINGSTOWN - Recycling pays and North Kingstown has received a big fat check because of it.
Last week, Michael O’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 town’s transfer station, including the containers in which residents can drop their recyclables off for free and for the free use of compost.
