Martone, who was set to request that the matter be sent to the council's ordinance subcommit- tee Tuesday evening, Aug. 6, said he received a call from someone regarding concerns on how residents store their bins between pickups. "When I get concerns from con- stituents, I think they should get a fair shot," he said. "I like to give it its due diligence." He said he doesn't know if a cer- tain solution is viable, but said the subcommittee will take a careful look at whether something could be done. The resident who offered con- cerns mentioned two issues, said Martone. • The unsightliness of the bins; • And whether keeping them out in the open might make them more attractive to pests. One solution mentioned by the con- stituent is that perhaps bins should be placed out of sight, he said. "I don't know how viable that is, especially with the layouts of some of the areas in town," said Martone, but it can't hurt for councilors to research what ordinances are in effect in other towns and whether any of their rules can be implemented here. Asked whether he himself would be able to keep trash and recycling bins out of sight, Martone said he keeps his bins in his garage. The town implemented a new automated trash collection program last fall, complete with large new charcoal-colored wheeled totes. That new program was intended to help clean up the look of the town and improve the town's waste dis- posal rates through limited capac- ity. But in June, The Breeze reported that the town wasn't seeing much improvement on reducing overall waste, as officials called for new education efforts. Martone said this week that the council continues to focus much of its discussion on educational aspects of trash and recycling, the general consensus being that people want to do the right thing but don't always know how to go about it. Also Tuesday, the council was set to discuss and possibly vote on new rules related to mattresses discarded along city streets. Council to consider possible rules on trash bin storage By ETHAN SHOREY Valley Breeze Managing Editor ethan@valleybreeze.com Rhode Island Blood Center announces 'pint for a pint' program PROVIDENCE – During the month of August, all presenting donors at Rhode Island Blood Center's six blood and platelet donation centers who are 21 or older can choose to receive a cou- pon for a free pint of beer. Participating breweries include Whalers Brewing Company in South Kingstown, Grey Sail Brewing in Westerly, Foolproof in Pawtucket, The Guild in Pawtucket, Proclamation Ale Company in Warwick, and Newport Craft Brewing Co. in Newport. All presenting center donors in August will also be automatically entered into a drawing to win a pair of tickets to see the New England Patriots home opener at Gillette Stadium on Sunday, Sept. 8. Donors 16 years and older will be eligible for the Patriot's ticket draw- ing. Donors must be 21 years of age to participate in the pint for a pint program. To encourage responsible drink- ing, coupons cannot be redeemed on the same day as the blood or platelet donation. Place your classified ad online at classifieds.valleybreeze.com
