Town of North Smithfield

 

UPDATE: Weekend Recycling Hours           

 

The Town of North Smithfield highway garage, 281 Quaker Highway, will now begin their seasonal Saturday and Sunday hours. Saturdays, the garage will be open from 9 am - 3 pm for town residents to bring rigid plastic, scrap metal and mattresses for recycling.  Beginning Sunday, May 7, 2017 the garage will also be open on Sundays from 9 am - 3 pm until further notice.  

Yard waste is also accepted, but residents are reminded we currently offer curbside yard waste pick up right at your home. The yard waste pick up season runs from April 17th - June 9th.  We encourage residents to use this pick- up service instead of bringing yard waste to the garage.  It is easier for the resident, uses less fuel and saves the town money.

   
 
 
 
 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

President Trump say he hopes he and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un will be able to meet in the coming weeks. But Trump warned he'd leave the meeting if it is not generating results. During a news conference with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe [[ SHEEN-zoe AH-bay ]] in Florida yesterday, Trump said he wants the Korean Peninsula to be peaceful and free of nuclear weapons.        The FAA is ordering inspections of jet engine fan blades like the one that snapped off and caused an engine on a Southwest Airlines flight to explode during a flight Tuesday. A woman was fatally injured when shrapnel from the engine blew out a window and she was pulled partway out of the plane. The plane made an emergency landing in Philadelphia.       President Trump travels to Key West today as his weeklong stay in Florida continues. He's scheduled to visit an interagency anti-drug trafficking task force.        California Governor Jerry Brown is mobilizing 400 National Guard troops to combat transnational crime. Earlier this month, President Trump called for up to four-thousand National Guard troops to be deployed to the border to work with the Border Patrol.        This week's theft of explosives from a work site in Pennsylvania is bigger than authorities originally thought. ATF investigators learned yesterday an additional case of dynamite is missing. That means thieves stole more than 700 pounds of explosives are missing, not 640 pounds as first reported. The thieves also made off with 400 blasting caps Monday. The ATF is offering a ten-thousand dollar reward.        New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is going to let 35-thousand convicted felons vote. They've been barred from voting by a New York law that requires felons to complete their parole before their voting rights can be restored. Cuomo said yesterday he'll issue an executive order to restore voting rights to felons now on parole and those who enter the parole system every month.
