Dear Municipal Partner,
As we continue to fight the global COVID-19 pandemic as a business, nation, and world, the reuse and recycling of textiles have been impacted dramatically in many ways. Due to the recent record-breaking rise in COVID-19 cases in Cuyahoga County and beyond, Simple Recycling has made the decision that it is in the best interest of our employees and communities to temporarily discontinue curbside textile collection until further notice.
COVID has affected our communities in many ways and while we are learning best practices; market conditions, global supply chains, and local health concerns have led us to this decision.
As a reminder, Simple Recycling's curbside program is operated at no cost to the municipality or its residents. We fully intend on bringing this program back to your community in the future and estimate that Spring 2021 is when we see health and market conditions improve.
In the meantime, feel free to direct residents in your communities to schedule a free donation pickup of clothing and shoes through www.DonateStuff.com.
We will be reaching out to you by phone individually to discuss your specific upcoming curbside service temporary suspension date and answer any questions you may have.
Again, we sincerely appreciated your partnership. We are wishing you and your loved ones continued health and well-being.
