Simple Recycling (Clothing & Textiles)

The City of Lansing has partnered with Simple Recycling, a company that collects usable clothing, shoes, textiles and household goods for reuse and recycling. Lansing residents can set these materials out at the curbside on their normal city recycling day. Simple Recycling provides special bags and tags to residents that must be used to set out these items. To request bags, contact Simple Recycling at 866-835-5068 or by email

Please remember this is a separate collection from the Lansing green recycling carts. Please do not put clothing and textiles inside recycling carts.
