Join the City of Providence, Serve Rhode Island and the Partnership for Providence Parks for the first annual citywide Earth Day Spring Cleaning. There are over 25 parks and neighborhoods cleanups, tree plantings, and beautification projects across the city.
Following the cleanup, volunteers are invited to join us for a celebration with Mayor Angel Taveras at the Roger Williams Park Temple to Music with free food for volunteers, fun activities for the whole family and music.
See a map of all of the events and register to volunteer at www.ServeRhodeIsland.org.
Your Big Green Can just got greener and recycling just got easier.
Waste Management and the City of Providence have delivered new gray trash barrels to city residents and converted the Big Green Cans to recycling. The program is already working to improve recycling rates across the city.
With the Big Green Can, you don't need to sort your recycling. Put your plastics, paper, glass, metal cans and foil together in the Big Green Can. When residents recycle, Providence saves money and we support a more sustainable future.
