CleanScape, a subsidiary of the South Providence Development Corporation, was incorporated in 1999 with a goal of joining environmental and social agendas. CleanScape offers high quality, comprehensive recycling services to businesses and institutions, and vacant lot cleanup and maintenance services to the City of Providence and private land owners.
To date, CleanScape has created seventeen new jobs, and cleared and improved thirty vacant lots. CleanScape in addition to reducing waste management costs for customers has also provided recycling education and services to area schools and the community at large. Partners in this effort include the Rhode Island Foundation, the Fleet Community Development Corporation, the City of Providence, the Cooperative Fund of New England, Rhode Island Hospital/Lifespan and the Jesse Smith-Noyes Foundation.
