Ending litter is important throughout the Ocean State.  The following agencies have implemented programs that support this endeavor and continue to work towards building a Litter Free Rhode Island.

RIDOT has three programs open to all Rhode Islanders that will keep litter off our roadways.  We have tried to do it all by ourselves, but we can’t even though we spend $800,000 a year on garbage pickup.  With our programs, you can adopt your own piece of road, and make it beautiful for everyone.

Please visit the RIDOT State Partner page to learn more about a wide range of initiatives to help keep Rhody Litter Free.

The State of Rhode Island offers a dazzling diversity of experiences with 8,200 acres of parkland, 1,000 campsites, 400 miles of hiking and biking trails, 200 fishing spots, 25 parks, management areas, and nature preserves, and eight saltwater beaches. 

As part of an effort to invest in and celebrate the state park system, the Department of Environmental Management (DEM) is working to improve trash and recycling services at state beaches and reduce litter in parks, beaches, and parking areas.

The Rhode Island Public Transit Authority (RIPTA) is committed to protecting the environment – and that means doing what it can to Keep Rhody Litter Free.  RIPTA recently switched its single-use paper fare system to Wave– a new smart fare technology. Passengers can now pay their bus fare with a reloadable smart card or with the Wave mobile app, thus reducing the need for paper and potential litter.
