Rain brought them out


Joseph Rotella, special waste manager for Rhode Island Resource Recovery, speculated Saturday that the day’s rain brought people out to the eco-depot held at the city yard on Sandy Lane. “They decided it was time to clean out the basement,” he said. Carloads of paint, hazardous waste and paper to be shredded were delivered to the pickup station. By noon, 44 bins, each containing 1,000 pounds of paint, had been collected for recycling and a truck was filled with shredded documents. The eco-depot visits Warwick only once a year, but there’s plenty of opportunity to properly dispose of paint and hazardous materials at scheduled collections. The next one is Nov. 17 in Pawtucket followed by Dec. 15 at RI Resource Recovery. (Warwick Beacon photos)
