Clothing & Household Goods Recycling

According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, 85% of textiles are not donated or recycled. That equates to an average of 70 pounds of textiles per person being thrown away every year.

The City of Brooklyn is asking its residents to help lower those statistics and have partnered with Simple Recycling, based in Solon, Ohio, for the curbside collection of clothing, shoes, textiles, and household goods. This program accepts reusable items as well as torn, stained, and otherwise irreparable clothing, linens, and working, small appliances that can be moved by one man.

How It Works

On your regularly scheduled recycling day, Brooklyn residents place your materials curbside, inside special bags provided by Simple Recycling. Special labeled tags are also available if you have household goods that are easier to box up.

Simple Recycling will replenish your bag and tag supplies as you use them. To request additional bags, visit the Supplies and FAQs page of the Simple Recycling website, or contact Simple Recycling at 866-835-5068.
