Simple Recycling

Update: 6.15.22

Simple Recycling service resumed by appointment only

The City of Ypsilanti is pleased to announce its partnership with Simple Recycling has resumed. The curbside recycling program provides the Ypsilanti community with a free and easy way to dispose clothing and household items. The Simple Recycling program originally kicked off in October 2015.

Items accepted by the Simple Recycling program include: clothing, sheets, pillows and pillow cases, blankets, comforters, belts, ties, books, shoes, curtains, purses, hats, kitchenware, pet beds, stuffed animals, tools and toys.

This program allows Ypsilanti to remain committed to caring for the environment by keeping clothing and household items out of landfills. However, this program is not meant to serve as a replacement for donations to charities and nonprofit organizations.

Simple Recycling also does not interfere with the City’s recycling and yard waste collection services. This program is only meant to provide Ypsilanti residents with another option for disposing clothing and household items that they no longer wish to keep.

You no longer need Simple Recycling bags! Simply fill any bags or boxes, label them and place them outside your front door by 7:30 AM. 

Pickups must be scheduled directly with Simple Recycling.  You can schedule a pickup by going to their website.
