Feria Hispana - recycling?
http://worldonline.media.clients.ellingtoncms.com/img/blogs/entry_img/2008/Sep/29/recycling.jpgThe photo says it all. People want to recycle. At yesterday's Feria Hispana people put their aluminum cans on top of the trash can so that they could be recycled. But note the plastic bottle inside. There were others further down. Every year there is an article in the Journal World about Lawrence being above average in the rate of recycling. Yet if you go to a public event in South Park you can't recycle unless you pack it somewhere else. Last November I traveled in Paraguay (our partner in Latin America). Paraguay is not nearly as developed as the USA. In several public places there were 3 trash cans with 2 set aside for recycling. Clearly Lawrence can do as well.
