WHAT DO I DO WITH MY OLD BINS?

Once you receive your new carts, you can dispose of your old trash and recycling bins by dropping them off at the Central Falls Department of Public Works located at 1280 High Street any time Mon-Thurs. 7:00am-3:00pm or Fridays 7-12pm.

 

WHY SHOULD I RECYCLE?

There are many environmental benefits to recycling, plus it saves money.  Your tax dollars are spent to dispose of trash.  The City pays for every ton of trash disposed at the landfill.  Rhode Island Resource Recovery accepts recyclable materials for free and actually reimburses the City depending on the amount recycled.

 

Not sure what to recycle? View these flyers that will tell you the Do’s and Dont’s of Recycling. The flyer is in English, Portuguese and Spanish.

 

WHAT SHOULD I DO WITH THE CART IF I MOVE?

Please leave your cart at your residence.  Each cart has a radio frequency identification tag (RFID) installed that registers the cart to a specific address.  The RFID tags are located by GPS coordinates that can monitor cart locations and send and alert if the cart is not registered to the address where it is collected.

 

WHO DO I CONTACT IF I HAVE A QUESTION?

Central Falls is a city rich in history, diversity and entrepreneurial spirit. I encourage you to visit Central Falls in person and experience our great restaurants and shops along our walkable business districts.

Our great city is home to nineteen thousand proud residents who are busy building a better future for Central Falls; a future I invite you to experience today.

With a proud history dating back to 1731, the City of Central Falls offers great opportunities for small business investment. Centrally located in southern New England with easy access to Providence, Boston, Hartford and Worcester, the city features low-cost mill space that hearkens back to its roots as the birthplace of the American Industrial Revolution.

The city’s diverse population offers an abundance of cultural riches – culinary, artistic, linguistic and beyond. At the same time, this wealth of diversity also provides bridges to nearly 100 countries abroad, allowing the city’s manufacturers access to new markets as well as a myriad of sources of raw materials.

At the same time, Central Falls and its citizens are rediscovering the Blackstone River that cuts through the city, the original economic engine that powered the mills that line its shores. The Chocolate Mill Overlook Park was recently created to highlight the city’s industrial origins while also providing another entrance to the river for kayakers, nature enthusiasts and those looking for some quiet meditation. Likewise, the re-lighting of Cogswell Tower atop Jenks Park heralds the reinvention of our proud little city as a nimble innovator.

Nestled between the City of Pawtucket and the Towns of Cumberland and Lincoln, the City of Central Falls is also compact: its 19,000+ citizens inhabit less than 1.3 square miles, making it quite walkable as well as appealing for retailers. While at one time the city was the most densely populated city in the United States, it has since lost that distinction, as it has focused on creating community gardens and sports fields where unneeded buildings once stood.

Feel free to contact me by calling the Mayor’s Office at (401) 727-7474 or emailing me at mayor@centralfallsri.us.

Welcome to the City of Central Falls.

Thank you,

James A. Diossa

Mayor
