Simple Recycling

Fort Bend MUD 23 has partnered with Simple Recycling to provide residents with a FREE curbside textile recycling service. The program makes for easier disposal of unwanted items in an environmentally friendly way.

Simple Recycling provides residents with pink bags that can be filled and placed curbside on regular recycling collection days.

Accepted Items

  • New or used clothing
  • Boots/shoes
  • Belts
  • Ties
  • Handbags
  • Hats
  • Gloves
  • Toys
  • Towels
  • Sheets
  • Blankets
  • Small kitchen appliances.

A full list of accepted items can be found on the company’s website,

When Simple Recycling picks up the pink recycling bags, they will leave bags for future use. Regular garbage bags (clearly marked for Simple Recycling) can be used if a resident does not have a pink bag. Additionally, pink bag requests can be made on the company’s website.

The Ohio-based for-profit company serves millions of households across the United States and is used by other neighborhoods and MUDs in our area.

According to the Simple Recycling website, all of the materials they collect are graded and sorted locally and/or regionally based on quality and condition. The top-quality materials will be resold to local thrift outlets; mid-grade items are exported to international markets and
“unusable” items are processed for raw materials.

Community Improvements Update

Earlier this year, residents of Fort Bend MUD 23 were invited to participate in an online survey regarding the opportunity to construct community improvements on almost 10 acres owned by the community near Goodman Elementary School.  Residents were also encouraged to attend the follow-up community workshop in March.  The results of the workshop can be seen here.  The flow chart below illustrates where the district’s consultants are in the planning process.  Check back here for periodic updates as the project develops.
