Simple Recycling will collect the pink bags following the City’s recycle routes.
The collected material will be sold in bulk to regional and national thrift store chains for repurposing.
Collections will begin in Bristol on October 30, 2017. Residents may contact Simple Recycling at 866-835-5068 or www.SimpleRecycling.com to report collection issues or request additional bags.
