Information on denim recycling

Residents in all RRRASOC member communities (Farmington, Farmington Hills, Milford Township, Novi, South Lyon, Southfield, Village of Milford, Walled Lake and Wixom) can recycle unwanted clothing, shoes, accessories and other household discards such as kitchenware, tools, toys and books, with a free, residential curbside pickup service on the same day as the weekly, recycling pick-up service.

In cooperation with participating communities and RRRASOC, Simple Recycling provides an easy, free and convenient way to keep this 100% recyclable and reusable material out of landfills.
