Dear Rocky River Residents:
Beginning next week, Simple Recycling will offer new opportunities for all residents of Rocky River to participate in curbside recycling of unwanted items. This no cost, curbside collection offers everyone additional opportunities to remove items from waste collection and lower our community’s landfill costs. The City will continue to collect from your backyard the blue bag co-mingled recycling containing appropriate paper, plastics, metal and glass on your scheduled refuse collection day.
Enclosed are items to help you recycle cloth and related materials with Simple Recycling, a company that collects unwanted items that you do not wish to donate to a charitable organization. Items that can be collected are clean clothing, sheets, towels, blankets or other materials. In addition, small appliances, tools, toys and shoes can also be recycled. The enclosed information explains the Simple Recycling process. As in all recycling efforts, eliminating these items from the landfill will save the City landfill fees. In addition, the City will receive a modest rebate from Simple Recycling that will be applied to our Refuse and Recycling efforts.
Recycling items with Simple Recycling is straightforward: fill the Simple Recycling bag provided with unwanted items and place the bag on your tree lawn the day of your refuse collection. An empty replacement bag will be left on your doorstep for your next donation. Simple Recycling will collect their recycling bags weekly from your tree lawn. Please use the easy to spot “Simple Recycling” bag which will be easily recognized and collected by Simple Recycling personnel.
We appreciate all your efforts to recycle and are pleased to offer this convenient opportunity to discard unwanted items and avoid additional landfill costs. Thank you.
City of Rocky River
