Simple Recycling Newsletter

The Town of Lakewood Village residents can recycle reusable clothing, shoes, and housewares with free, curbside pick-up on their regular recycling collection day. Simply place your orange bags provided by Simple Recycling beside your recycling bin before 7:30 AM and they will take care of the rest, leaving behind replacement bags for your continued convenience. For a list of acceptable items, you can visit their website at

Did you know, without a curbside program, 85% of clothing, shoes, and reusable housewares get thrown into a landfill? On average, that results in 21 BILLION pounds of textile waste in the United States annually! The EPA reported nearly 68 pounds of textiles per household end up in the residential waste stream every year. The City of The Colony and Simple Recycling have partnered in order to help change these shocking numbers and reduce the amount of reusable waste (which makes up to 15% of the residential waste stream) that ends up in our landfills.

To request additional bags visit their website at or you can reach Simple Recycling at 1-866-835-5068

Simple Recycling - How it Works

Each year, over 21 billion pounds of clothing go into U.S. landfills - in an effort to combat this growing problem, the Town of Lakewood Village has partnered with Simple Recycling to offer curb-side pick-up of clothing, shoes and small household 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 orange bags provided by Simple Recycling.

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 OR ON TOP OF TRASH OR RECYCLING CONTAINERS.

Step 3: A Simple Recycling truck will collect the bags and recycle the items for reuse. Additionally, Simple Recycling will leave behind additional replacement bags for future use upon collection.

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

The following items will be accepted at the curb by Simple Recycling:

  • Men, women and children’s clothing
  • Coats and Jackets
  • Jewelry
  • Shoes
  • Purses
  • Hats
  • Toys
  • Pictures
  • Mirrors
  • Blankets
  • Drapes/Curtains
  • Pillows
  • Sleeping Bags
  • Small Furniture
  • Small Appliances, such as toasters, microwaves and coffee makers
  • Irons
  • Radios
  • Lamps
  • Hairdryers
  • Tools
  • Silverware
  • Dishes
  • Pots/Pans
  • Glasses
  • Backpacks

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 outlets, mid-grade is exported to international markets and “unusable” items are processed for raw materials. Before the program begins, residents will receive two Simple Recycling bags by mail. For every bag Simple Recycling collects, a new bag will be left, usually they are tied to the handle of a refuse bin. Additional bags can be made available by visiting, calling 866-835-5068 or emailing This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
