Residents urged not to put yard waste in Big Green Can; improper recycling will result in fines.
The City of Providence Department of Public Works reminds residents that free yard debris collection begins today, Monday, April 14, 2014.
Residents are urged not to dispose of yard debris in big green recycling cans. Please be advised that yard debris improperly placed in recycling barrels will result in a fine of up to $500 to the property owner. When yard waste is mixed with recycling it costs the City money, as yard debris contaminates entire loads of recycling.
