SIMPLE RECYCLING PROGRAM CANCELLED!
Over the last seven weeks, Small businesses, including Simple Recycling have experienced extreme financial difficulties due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Their leadership has evaluated their programs and had to make cutbacks. They have decided to permanently discontinue running curbside textile service in Orange. Your blue bin is NOT affected. Thank you to all who supported the program. If you have textile items, remember our option of the Goodwill container located at our Transfer Station.
What do I do with plastic bags/plastic film? Plastic bags and plastic film, also known as shrink wrap, should never be put in curbside or transfer station single stream recycling bins because they can jam equipment at the Intermediate Processing Centers that prepare recyclables to be marketed. However, a number of participating retailers do have collection bins for plastic bags at their stores. Most of these bags are sent to the manufacturer of a recycled composite lumber that is used for outdoor decking. Better yet, bring reusable cloth bags with you when you go shopping.
