Simple Recycling program offers recycling options


Beginning the first week of April, Simple Recycling will be transitioning from green bags to orange bags making the bags and items more distinguishable from the regular trash and recycling placed on the curb. Shelby residents can expect to receive an orange postcard and two (2) orange Simple Recycling bags in the mail the last week of March. During the transition, Simple Recycling will still pick up the green bags if they are left out and will leave additional orange Simple Recycling bags for future use.

In 2016, close to 13,000 Shelby households participated and helped divert over 222,000 pounds of clothing, shoes, and housewares from the landfill!


To request additional bags and tags you can email, visit their website at and for any additional questions you can reach Simple Recycling at 1-866-835-5068
