Keep out of Landfill via Special Program:
If your city or town is listed below, click on its name to see the local scrap metal instructions for its residents. Statewide options that are open to all RI residents are also listed below. Fees may apply for items that are not 100% metal. RIRRC does not recommend any one business or organization over another.
If drop-off for recycling is not an option, please dispose of in your regular trash. Cities and towns with automated trash collection carts require all trash to fit inside the cart. Cities and towns that empty trash by hand (using your own barrels) may have special instructions for items too large to fit in trash bags. Search for "bulky waste" to find your local disposal instructions.
Remember, when it comes to metal, if the metal item isn't a CAN, LID, or FOIL then it never goes in your mixed recycling bin or cart!
