The Cost of Dumping Trash at Our Big GREEN Bins

Keep it Classy! Not Trashy!

Dumping at our sites or bins is NOT philanthropy. This is littering and it costs our agency A LOT of money to clean up. As Governor Gina Raimondo would say: #KnockItOff. Drop your donations at 1540 Pontiac Ave in Cranston ONLY, please! #BiggerTogether
