The Village of Peninsula has 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, Peninsula residents place 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 their website at www.simplerecycling.com/supplies, contact Simple Recycling at 216-438-7109, or simply stop by the Village Hall and request bags & tags Monday-Friday 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
According to the US 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 Village of Peninsula is asking its residents to help lower those statistics by recycling clothing, shoes, and other household textiles.
