Lancaster, TX - The City of Lancaster in partnership with Simple Recycling will begin a new program starting on July 10, 2017 that will allow Lancaster residents to 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 the rest will be taken care of, leaving behind replacement bags for your continued convenience. For a list of acceptable items, you can click HERE.2000 recycleW

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 Lancaster 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 you can email Simple Recycling at , click  HERE or you can reach Simple Recycling at 1-866-835-5068.

A brochure containing detailed information will be arriving in your mailbox prior to kickoff.
