NEW Simple Recycling Pink Bag Curbside Collection Program

This past August, the City of Waltham launched a new curbside recycling program for clothing and a variety of household goods. The program is in addition to our current recycling program. This free program is run by Simple Recycling in cooperation with Waltham’s Recycling Department. It is not run by the Consolidated Public Works Department and does not require enrollment.

Simple Recycling’s primary focus is on clothing and accessories, but they will also take small usable household discards (see list attached). This recycling initiative is part of the City’s attempt to reduce Waltham’s trash tonnage and reduce the amount of trash going to landfills. Every Waltham household has received a pink bag from Simple Recycling with details attached. Simply fill your pink bag and place it at your curb (at least 3ft away from your wheeled recycling cart) on your regularly scheduled recycling collection day. Pink bags should never be placed in or on your blue wheeled cart. For those of you in need of pink bags, you can request them here: & you can schedule pick-ups and report missed pick ups with Simple Recycling here:
