Textile Recycling Program Begins Week of January 15

Skokie residents who receive curb or alley recycling collection can now participate in free curbside textile collection through the new Simple Recycling program. Textile recycling occurs on the same day as recycling collection, and Simple Recycling sent collection bags and instructions to all Skokie homes last week.

An estimated 85 percent of textiles end up in landfills, despite charitable collection centers and pick up services. The Village has contracted with Simple Recycling, an Ohio company, to provide the service that is aimed to keep textiles out of landfills. Residents that take items to local charities and thrift stores are encouraged to continue to do so. 

If you did not receive a bag and instructions from Simple Recycling, please call the Public Works Department at 847/933-8427 or email info@skokie.org. Residents in the 60203 zip code area can expect a mailing from Simple Recycling with bags and instructions during the week of January 22.
