Nooo!!!! This is one thing I’ve been truly dying to do- pick up yard waste!

uhg...27 bags in my garage

any option for drop off?

Man. Our lawn waste is full waiting for this to start. Cleaning up the yard is good stay at home work.

Well, I hope you extend the limit of bags to be greater than 12 then

You can always start a compost pile in the backyard in the meantime! No need to wait to start yard work go for it!

Nothing like waiting till the last minute.

That sucks

Thank you for letting us know

UGHHHH I have bags already

Mine are on the curb already.

Rich Marcaccio

Noooooo!!

That sure kills my project of cleaning up the yard during this confinement.

Would of been nice to put a notice on there website or had channel 10 or 12 notified so they could put in on the task bar like when there’s a school closing

damn you guys will complain about anything

You do what you have to do to keep everyone safe - the leaves and yard waste can wait forever ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฟ๐Ÿ™

Thank you for all the precautions you are taking. Be safe & stay healthy!

Thank you for letting us know!

Throwback Sunday?: We go back 10 years to the historic heavy rains and flood of late March 2010. The attached photos were taken by local resident & photographer Raymond Beausejour on March 30, 2010 in the Waterman Ave. / Esmond St. and Georgiaville areas of Smithfield.

Update: Rick Tavis has some more great photos here: www.facebook.com/rick.tavis/media_set?set=a.1313969460936&type=3&hc_location=ufi

I live in Smithfield and had no clue this happened. Then my husband reminded me that it’s because we were so busy dealing with our flooded basement!

There was also a heroic water rescue during the flood: "During the historical floods in Rhode Island on March 30, 2010 an elderly man in a car was swept into deep water . Some Courageous Young people braved the cold and poluted waters to guide the quickly submerging car away from the rapids and then proceeded to extract the gentleman from the car and bring him to safety . This occured in the Esmond Section of the Town of Smithfield , Rhode Island" www.youtube.com/watch?v=WGvztsU27ZU&fbclid=IwAR3L-34yKdO5g6Vmm-NVCl6wt3DfWEzD75QTMC6J3jU-4VCBkgur...

This was right down the street from me! I’ve watched that area flood many times but never to that degree!!
