The following information has been provided by the Clean City Program on the City of Newport's website.
The Newport Public Services Department’s Clean City Program would like to alert residents of yard waste collections due to Hurricane Sandy.
As a reminder, yard waste may be put out for collection during the week of November 5.
Yard waste will only be collected in brown paper leaf bags or loose in trash barrels labeled “yard waste.”
Branches and twigs up to three feet long and four inches in diameter must be bundled and tied, placed in paper yard waste bags or loose in barrels. Yard waste will not be collected in plastic bags.
Free yard waste stickers are available to residents through the Clean City Program, located in the back entrance of the Public Services garage in the city yard, 80 Halsey St. and at City Hall in the Collections office.
