Friendswood residents will soon receive orange recycling bags in their mailbox. The bags are for the new program launched by Keep Friendswood Beautiful called “Simple Recycling.”
Beginning March 4, at no cost to the city or residents, you can fill up your orange bag(s) and place it on the ground next to your recycling bin before 7 a.m. on your regular recycling day. A Simple Recycling truck driver will pick up your bag(s) and leave replacement ones behind.
Here’s what can be put in the orange Simple Recycling bags: men’s, women’s or children’s clothing of any size, shoes, blankets, pillows, curtains, and many more types of items. The full list is at www.SimpleRecycling.com or you can call 866-835-5068.
The city still wants you to consider donating gently used items to local charities first, but if it can’t be donated, then please give it to Simple Recycling. Simple Recycling is not a non-profit organization. If you would prefer to donate your items to a charity and receive a tax receipt, please contact local organizations.
