Residents can recycle reusable clothing, shoes, and household items with free, curbside pick-up on their regular recycling collection day. Simply place your bags or properly tagged items provided by Simple Recycling beside your recycling bin before 8:00 AM and they will take care of the rest, leaving behind replacement bags for your continued convenience. For a list of acceptable items, you can visit their website at

Simple Recycling, based in Solon, Ohio, is the largest and fastest growing curbside recycling program in the nation. Currently, Simple Recycling services approximately three million residents in Ohio, Michigan, Indiana, and Texas. This convenient service offers residents the opportunity to be involved in the highest environmental impact initiative at no cost!

Did you know, without a curbside program, 85% of clothing, shoes, and reusable home goods get thrown into a landfill? On average, that results in 21 BILLION pounds of textile waste in the United States annually! The EPA reported nearly 68 pounds of textiles per household end up in the residential waste stream every year. Your city and Simple Recycling have partnered in order to help change these shocking numbers and reduce the amount of reusable home good waste (which makes up to 15% of the residential waste stream) that ends up in our landfills. Thanks to the partnerships between Simple Recycling and environmentally conscious municipalities such as your own, Northeast Ohio is among national leaders in clothing and home goods diversion.
