Simple Recycling Has Ended

Simple Recycling

Simple Recycling, the pickup service which collects textiles and household goods at your curb, ended service operations in Coon Rapids as of July 3. While the free program collected about 4,500 pounds of recyclables through orange curbside bags each month in Coon Rapids for the last couple of years, the amount fell short of Simple Recycling’s goals. 

Although this curbside service is no longer available in the city, you are still able to recycle textiles and other goods at the Coon Rapids Recycling Center! Bring your clothing, shoes and other items to the facility during normal business hours. You can find a complete list of accepted items here. Another option is to donate household goods at local thrift stores.
