NEW CARTS ARE HERE! The City distributed a set of 65-gallon carts to each household during the month of October and cart-based collection started on November 3, 2014. Visit the New Collection Contract page for background on the new program and FAQs, and visit the Curbside Collection Program for complete program details.
The Newport Department of Public Services' Clean City Program provides services for the curbside collection of residential refuse, yard waste and recycling, bulky waste by appointment through a contract with Waste Management, as well as litter management for areas with heavy pedestrian traffic and graffiti mitigation.

The Clean City Program maintains approximately 225 litter barrels in the downtown business area and in the city's parks. Litter collection is provided by seasonal employees operating mechanical sidewalk sweepers.
