East Providence recycling changes take effect next week

A reminder for East Providence residents - recycling pickup changes begin September 9th.

City officials say the new, tall blue bins are for recyclables only. No trash is to be thrown in the new bins.

Also, recyclables will now be picked up every other week. If your items are picked up on Monday, September 9th, they won't be picked up again until Monday, September 23rd.

Trash and yard waste will still be picked up every week.
