Simple Recycling returns to driveway pickups

Rather than discarding items in the trash, residents have the option to donate them to Simple Recycling. The company, which collected only cloth items in the past, is now accepting additional items such as jewelry, shoes, purses, toys, blankets, drapes, pillows, sleeping bags, tools, silverware, dishes, pans and backpacks.

To request a pickup of these items, email Simple Recycling at or call 866-835-5068. The company will deliver a bag for the items and will pick up the filled bag on the same day as the homeowner’s trash is picked up.

The bag must be placed near the curb but not inside any container. A Simple Recycling truck will pick up the bag of items and leave a replacement bag for future use. ∞
