NEW CURBSIDE TEXTILE RECYCLING PROGRAM

Simple Recycling

Curbside Recycling of Clothing, Shoes and Home Goods is coming to the City of Corinth. Beginning June 12th, 2017, the City of Corinth will be adopting the highest impact residential waste reduction initiative in the U.S. that is completely free to the city and its residents!


Corinth residents can recycle reusable clothing, shoes, and household items with free, curbside pick-up on their regular recycling collection day. During launch, every resident will receive a series of mailers with program information along with two (2) Simple Recycling bags. Simply place your bags provided by Simple Recycling beside your recycling bin before 7:30AM on your regular recycling collection day. Talk about convenience!


Simple Recycling will leave behind replacement bags for future use. For a list of acceptable items, you can visit their website at www.simplerecycling.com.   

 

All collected clothing, shoes and home goods are diverted from the waste stream, reducing tipping costs at the landfill, and begin their journey of reuse and recycling. 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!


Simple Recycling is the largest and fastest growing curbside recycling program in the nation. Currently, Simple Recycling services approximately 1.2 million households in Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio, and Texas.


To request additional bags, you can email Simple Recycling at info@simplerecycling.com, visit their website at www.simplerecycling.com/supplies or you call them at 1-866-835-5068.
