Simple Recycling

Simple Recycling Van

Since May 2016, the Charter Township of Brownstown has partnered with Simple Recycling, a company that collects usable clothing, shoes, textiles, and household goods for reuse and recycling. 

Instead of curbside collection on your regular trash day, Simple Recycling is now requiring residents to schedule a pickup by visiting. 

Step 1: Residents can schedule free pickups online at  or by calling customer service at 866-835-5068.  

Step 2: Place your items outside your front door by 7:00 am on your scheduled pickup day.  Make sure all items are bagged and tagged for Simple Recycling. Please note that Simple Recycling is no longer providing bags.  You can use your own bags or boxes, just make sure that you label them "For Simple Recycling."

Step 3: A Simple Recycling truck will collect the bags and recycle the items for reuse.

Please note, only items placed inside the bags or tagged with Simple Recycling labels will be collected. Simple Recycling will not pick up anything left outside of the bag or untagged.
