The Newport Department of Public Services' Clean City Program provides services for the curbside collection of residential refuse, yard waste and recycling, as well as litter management for areas with heavy pedestrian traffic and graffiti mitigation.
The Clean City Program has posted the 2014 Clean City Program Solid Waste & Recycling Calendar

Yard Waste collection is offered for one week in January (with Christmas tree pickup), one week in March, four weeks in April, every other week through the spring and summer, and for four weeks combined in November & December.
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.
