Each year, over 14 million tons of clothing go into US landfills. In an effort to combat this growing problem, Seven Hills has partnered with Simple Recycling to offer curb-side pick-up of clothing, shoes and small house hold items.
Simple Recycling is a for-profit recycler committed to offering residents the easiest way to keep usable materials from the landfill. the program is free of charge and simple to use.
Step 1: Place clothing, shoes and home goods into the large orange bags provided by Simple Recycling. Simple Recycling will also provide residents with tags for larger items that will not fit inside bags.
Step 2: Place your bags at the curb on your regular collection day by 7:30am. Simple Recycling materials should be placed beside residents recycling container. DO NOT PLACE SIMPLE RECYCLING BAGS INSIDE TRASH OR RECYCLING 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 the bag or un-tagged.
All of the materials collected are graded and sorted locally based on quality and condition. The top quality materials will be resold to local thrift stores, mid-grade is exported to international markets and "unusable" items are processed for raw materials.
For every bag that Simple Recycling collects, a new bag will be left, usually they are tied to the habdle of a refuse bin.
