On Sept. 30, officials from Rhode Island Resource Recovery Corporation presented checks to every city and town in the state as part of the company's profit-sharing program.
Last year, each community received a share of about $1.94 million in profits from the sale of recyclables — in Narragansett's case, about $22,000; for South Kingstown, the tally was about $55,000.
A press conference was held Monday morning, during which the 2013 amounts were announced. Check back with Patch on Tuesday to learn how much Narragansett and South Kingstown each received.
According to RIRRC, the money can only be spent on updating the recycling programs in each city and town.
If there weren't such a restriction, what would you suggest as a use for the money?
