A Helpful Guide to Single-stream Recycling from the Washington Post
We took the quiz in this Washington Post article, titled “You’re probably recycling wrong. This quiz will help you sort it out.” (The article is behind a paywall.) We took the quiz twice so we could show you all the correct answers! 🙂 Check out the PDF of the results by clicking the button below, and see if anything surprises you! (Note: some of the answers depend on the capabilities and requirements of your local single-stream recycling service. Read this PDF for general rules, then scroll down on this page and read the City of Lawrence requirements.)
Here are a few links to information on the available recycling options in Lawrence and Douglas County.
