Grand Lakes residents can now recycle clothing, shoes, and various home goods curbside thanks to a contract between the Grand Lakes Community Association and Simple Recycling.   This program complements the existing Best Trash recycling program and items accepted do not overlap.

If you currently donate unwanted textiles and home goods to charitable organizations for tax or philanthropic purposes, you are encouraged to continue to do so.  Katy Christian Ministries, Clothed by Faith, Goodwill, St. Vincent de Paul and other IRS designated non-profit organizations depend on donations to continue their good work in the community.  If you aren’t currently donating these items, Simple Recycling will accept them as well as the worn-out or non-working items that Goodwill and KCM, cannot accept.  Simple Recycling makes money on the items it collects, allowing the Grand Lakes Community Association to pay no costs associated with this service and be compensated $20 for every ton of material collected.

 To utilize the program:

  1. Place clothing, shoes, and accepted home goods (in any condition) into the orange bags provided by Simple Recycling.
  2. Place your bags at the curb on your regular recycle day (Thursday) next to your Best Trash recycling cart.
  3. Simple Recycling will pick up your bags and leave replacement bags behind.

A full list of accepted materials can be found at: here
