Lawrence has a single stream recycling system, which means that you are able to mix all recyclables in the same bin. Paper, newspaper, cardboard, plastic, food cans, aluminum cans and glass can all be together. No more separating recyclables.
There is enthusiasm for recycling like never before, and now is the time to be even more careful about what you place in your curbside recycling bin. In order to be recycled materials must be raw and clean, reason why we ask you to keep the following items out of your recycling bin: plastic bags, plastic wrap, food left overs, textiles, anything that tangles, Styrofoam, bulky items.
As part of our recycling program we give residents green stickers that read “Lawrence Recycles” to be placed on any barrel/bin you have at home. This is great because now you can reuse old barrels and even better you can use a much larger bin to fill up. Some residents chose to buy a large barrel with a lid and wheels.
