Curbside Clothing Starts November 11, 2019Franklin is pleased to announce that a curbside clothing recycling program will begin starting November 11, 2019. The company doing the recycling is called Simplerecycling More information about the company can be found on their web page https://simplerecycling.com/.
DPW Director Brutus Cantoreggi and Chris White made a presentation to the Town Council on Sep 18,2019 on the Clothing Recycling Program to be started in November.
This is another option to recycle, folks can still use the other non-profit recyclers that they have.
The key benefit for Franklin in implementing this curbside option: For those who want to recycle clothing this way, we can remove it from the solid waste stream and improve our recycle contamination rates.
This curbside option makes it easier for folks to help remove clothing from the solid waste stream. For those who want to call or deliver the clothing, etc. themselves to the other non-profits, they can continue to do so.
it is a weekly program, bags will be coming via mail.
Everything can go in the same bag for convenience. See the listing of acceptable items.
