Simple Recycling

Did you know that 85% of all clothing ends up in the landfill and only 15% gets recycled or donated? Let's change those statistics!

The City of Westlake is pleased to introduce Simple Recycling! Simple Recycling will begin collection of textiles and soft recyclables from city residents on August 15, 2016. 
Simple Recycling is a local company who has over 50 years of experience in collection, processing and disposition of soft recyclables. These services are offered at no cost to the City or residents.

  • Acceptable Items
    Men's, women's and children's clothing, shoes, bedding, belts, books, bras, coats, fashion accessories, gloves, handbags, hats, jackets, kitchenware, linens, pillows, purses, slippers (in pairs), socks, stuffed animals, table linens, tools, towels, toys and undergarments.

  • Unacceptable Items
    Appliances, furniture, tires, paint, carpeting, mattresses, traditional recyclables (metal, glass, paper) and hazardous waste. 

Simple Recycling will supply you with green logo recycling bags and stickers for use on larger items. You will then place the items curbside on your normal collection day. As you properly participate in the program, the bags/stickers will be re-supplied by Simple Recycling on an as needed basis.

This new program provides another option for homeowners. Many residents currently donate their used clothing and shoes to charitable organizations and may prefer to continue to do so. For some, placing the items curbside might be more convenient.

Residents will be receiving a Simple Recycling postcard and packet (see photo below) in the mail the beginning of August. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Simple Recycling at 866-835-5068.
