Starting on Monday, April 8, 2019, the Town of South Windsor will begin offering a convenient new recycling service for residents: Curbside collection of used textiles and small household items. The service will be provided by Simple Recycling (www.simplerecycling.com) and will be free to the Town of South Windsor and free to residents.
Simple Recycling will send informational mailers to residents who receive recycling collection from the Town of South Windsor. The mailers will contain free Simple Recycling bags. When cleaning out closets or disposing of unwanted clothes and small household items, residents can place them in the bags. Residents can then place the bags at the curb or alley near their recycling container on their normal recycling collection day. Simple Recycling’s trucks will pick them up, free of charge.
When Simple Recycling collects bags from a residence, the collection worker will leave replacement bags at the curb. Residents can also contact Simple Recycling for more bags at 866-835-5068 or email [email protected].
