As many businesses have struggled to stay afloat during the stay at home order, Simple Recycling was forced to close their Cincinnati operations. The City entered a contract with Simple Recycling in late 2017 and had one year remaining on this contract, which was of no cost to the City or residents.
During the last three years of collections, residents recycled 44,692 pounds of textiles and small household appliances. This amount equates to 22.35 tons of recyclables that were diverted from the landfills.
We thank Simple Recycling for their vision and efforts. We are sad to see a family-owned company suffer and be forced to make such a hard decision. We encourage residents to continue to donate their items to a charitable organization of their choice or even a consignment shop. Remember to Reduce, Reuse and Recycle.
