Private Trash & Recyclables Hauler Option

For residents opting to have curbside pickup service, download a list of Licensed Private Hauler (PDF). All private haulers in South Kingstown must be licensed by the Town, and residents are required to select a licensed hauler.  If a hauler is not on this list, they are not currently licensed to provide residential or commercial service in South Kingstown. It is recommended to contact each of the licensed haulers for pricing, since prices can vary significantly.

As a condition of licensing, all haulers must collect recyclables curbside on a regular schedule. Residents should contact their private hauler for information on their recycling schedule.  To facilitate the curbside recycling process, haulers have been issued rolling recycling toters and a detailed recycling brochure for each of their residential customers. Download the recycling brochure (PDF) for more information.

The Town of South Kingstown looks forward to achieving a high recycling rate through the joint efforts of Town staff, the private haulers, and all residents. For additional information, questions or concerns please call the Recycling Coordinator at 401-789-9331, ext. 2259.
