Commercial Recycling Program

The Clean City Program, in partnership with Waste Management, offers a commercial recycling program for small businesses in the City of Newport.

The program was created to help more entities recycle and to help the city increase its recycling rate.  Qualifying business owners can save money due to the simple fact that separating recyclable goods from the waste stream can decrease the ultimate weight of and cost of disposal of the solid waste streams.

This program is aimed at small businesses that currently do not have a recycling program and will not exceed the containers offered in this program. Residential units such as rentals or condos over 8 units that that are not included in the city’s trash and recycling program may also participate in the commercial recycling program.

Businesses must sign a service agreement with Waste Management in order to start service and may contact WM directly at (401)847-0230.
