In advance of Earth Day, the Rhode Island Resource Recovery Corporation, the agency that runs the Central Landfill, has launched it's annual education campaign focused on recycling. The campaign includes TV and radio spots and a series of web videos on how to recycle properly.
Sarah Kite, director of recycling services, said workers at the recycling facility continuously find items that don’t belong in there.
A bill introduced in the state Senate allows the Rhode Island Resource Recovery Corporation to once again use recycled glass as part of its daily cover material atop the landfill. The original amendment banned construction and demolition materials, including glass, for use as daily cover material at the landfill.
