Needlers gather at the library 'Pink bag' initiative would keep clothes out of the dump NORTH PROVIDENCE – The North Providence Planning Board last Wednesday unanimously voted to advise the Zoning Board of Review not to grant a use variance to allow a marijuana cultivation facility at 1029 Charles St. The request from Rado Realty would have allowed a use prohibited in a commercial village, or CV zone, in 14,000 square feet of space of a building that's been used as a ware- house. The Zoning Board will consider Planners recommend against marijuana grow facility By ETHAN SHOREY Valley Breeze Managing Editor See MARIJUANA, Page 6 Breeze THE NORTH PROVIDENCE A Valley Breeze Newspaper FREE NOVEMBER 15-21, 2017 NORTH PROVIDENCE – Residents could soon see pink bags dotting the town on recycling day if leaders move forward with a new program under consideration to keep clothing and other textiles out of the landfill. Kristen Brown, of Waste Zero, and a consul- tant for Simple Recycling, told the Town Council last week that Simple Recycling's pro- gram is totally free to the town and its residents. It gives a chance for residents to recycle materials they might not otherwise keep out of the dump, she said, while potentially saving on waste disposal costs. "It's easy, it's fun, it's pink," she said. Simple Recycling is a textile col- lection recycling company, picking up everything from clothing, shoes, purses and belts, to pillows and other fabric items. The company will also accept other home goods, including toys. Everything goes in pink recycling bags, which would be delivered to homeowners. Vans from the company run the same routes as the regular recycling trucks. The goal, besides making money for the company, is to push items "back in the reuse stream," said Brown. "It's one of the (most fun) pro- grams I've ever worked on," she said. The rapidly expanding Simple Recycling is set to open a new hub in Taunton, Mass., said Brown. Heritage Podiatry, Inc.
