Munroe Falls is asking its residents to help lower those statistics by recycling clothing, shoes, textiles and household goods.
The City of Munroe Falls has partnered with Simple Recycling, based in Solon, Ohio, for the curbside collection of clothing, shoes, textiles, and household goods. This program accepts reusable items as well as torn, stained, and otherwise irreparable clothing, linens, and working, small appliances that can be moved by one person.
