To the editor:
Lawrence should require its citizens to recycle. It seems like in an educated town like Lawrence, people would be required to recycle.
Everyone knows that recycling reduces pollution and will make our resources last longer. It also reduces the trash put in landfills, it is energy efficient, and it protects wildlife.
My grandpa lives in a small town near Wichita called El Dorado and they are required to recycle. Many people outside of Lawrence know us as a “Green City,” yet we don’t require people to recycle. Since we don’t recycle, a large amount of recyclable material is thrown away every day.
Lawrence should do more for the environment by requiring its citizens to recycle.
