Frequently Asked Questions

  • With this program you do not need any special bags for the pickups.  Please make sure the items are in a container for ease of pickup.
  •  All of the materials are graded and sorted locally and/or regionally based on quality and condition. The top quality materials will be resold to local thrift outlets, mid grade is exported to international markets and “unusable” items are processed for raw materials.
  • The items being picked up through Simplerecycling need to be kept separate from the rest of your recycled items that would be in your recycling bin.
  • A separate truck is used to collect your Simplerecycling.
  • If you miss your pickup, just reschedule it like a regular pickup.
