I recently read a Lawrence Journal-World article about Cans for the Community. I live near Broken Arrow School and was wondering where the closest recycling bin is located.
Cans for the Community collects and recycles aluminum cans and then donates all proceeds to nonprofits in Douglas County. In five years, the group has donated $55,000. The closest recycling bin would be Checkers, 23rd and Louisiana streets. Other locations are: Immanuel Lutheran Church, 15th and Iowa streets; Miller Mart, Wakarusa Drive and Clinton Parkway; Hy-Vee Food Stores, Sixth Street and Monterey Way, and Clinton Parkway and Kasold Drive; Mass Beverage, 3131 Nieder Road, next to Target; Hillcrest Shopping Center, Ninth and Iowa streets; Lawrence Memorial Hospital, Third and Maine streets; and Allen Press, 10th and Delaware streets. For more information, contact Linda Klinker at 331-6599 or Kathy Richardson at 979-4249.
