You are responsible for cleaning the cart if needed.

Disposing of Your Waste Responsibly
We bring all of the waste we collect from our residential and commercial customers to Resource Recovery Technologies (RRT) in Newport. RRT turns waste into renewable energy. We do not bring any of our residential or commercial waste to a landfill. Although using a landfill would be less expensive, we feel that this is the most environmentally responsible solution for the disposal of the waste we collect. For more information on RRT go to
