Natick residents can still have their recyclable textiles picked up curbside for free, but now instead of them automatically being picked up on your regular recycling day, you need to schedule ahead.
Here’s how to participate:
- Schedule your free pickup at SimpleRecycling.com
- Leave allowable items at your door by 7:30 AM in a box or a bag (these no longer need to be in a pink bag)
- Simple Recycling will pick them up. If the items are not out when they visit, Simple Recycling will leave a door hanger letting them know they stopped by.
If your bags are not picked up on your scheduled recycling day, contact Simple Recycling via www.SimpleRecycling.com, 866.835.5068 or email@example.com. Natick’s Department of Public Works is not responsible for collecting the pink Simple Recycling bags.
Virtually any textile can be reused, repurposed, or recycled if clean and dry. Even worn, torn, and stained items have recovery value, and the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection prohibits throwing away textiles in the trash.
Drop Off Textile Collection Boxes
Textile collection boxes are available in the parking lot of every Natick Public School and at the Recycling Center. The majority of these boxes are managed by Baystate Textiles, which pays Natick Public Schools for every ton collected.
