Single Stream Recycling

Single Stream Recycling

Lawrence Recycles!

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.

Get the free recycling labels at the Public Works Office.

Lawrence has a single stream recycling system, which means that you’re 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. Check the Recyclopedia to search what items can be recycled.
