Due to the State of Michigan Executive Order, effective March 24th, ALL Simple Recycling (textiles) collection operations in the state are temporarily suspended.  This will remain in effect until further notice.  This is ONLY the orange collection bags.

85% of all clothing ends up in the landfill; only 15% gets recycled or donated.  In an effort to reduce our landfill waste, Plymouth Township has partnered with Simple Recycling to offer curbside pick-up of clothng, shoes and fabrics.  This program is voluntary, free of charge and simple to use.

Prior to the launch date of June 3, residents will receive two Simple Recycling bags and details regarding acceptable items by mail.  Simple Recycling will provide collection bags for residents to fill with used clothing, shoes, and worn out linens.  All materials collected are sorted locally based on quality and condition.  Items are distributed to local thrift outlets, exported to international markets, or processed for raw materials.

Step 1:  Place clothing, shoes and linens into the orange bags provided by Simple Recycling. 

Step 2:  Place your bags at the curb on your regular collection day.  Simple Recycling materials should be placed on the opposite side of your driveway from your refuse and set apart from recycling carts and yard waste containers.

Step 3:  A Simple Recycling truck will collect the bags and recycle the items for reuse.

Please note, only items placed inside the bags or tagged with Simple Recycling labels will be collected.  Simple Recycling will not pick up anything left outside of the bag or untagged.

Additional bags can be made available by visiting simplerecycling.com, calling 866-835-5068 or emailing info@simplerecycling.com
