On Sept. 30, officials from Rhode Island Resource Recovery Corporation are expected to present 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 Bristol's case, about $33,000; for Warren, the tally was about $26,800.
A press conference is scheduled for 10 a.m. Monday, where the 2013 amounts will be announced.
According to RIRRC, the money can only be spent on updating the recycling programs in each city and town.
But if there weren't such a restriction, what would you suggest as a use for the money?
