Rethink Your Trash Can

Look at the containers you use to collect trash and recyclables. Chances are, the trash can is larger than the recycling can. Switch them so that the smaller container is used to collect trash. You’ll think twice before you throw a large item in a small container.

Go Green in Waukegan

Welcome to the library’s newest blog! We’ll be kicking off our new Go Green blog by publishing an entry every day for the first 30 days. Several contributors will be writing on the many ways to save energy, reduce waste, and have fun doing it. Our first offering is a map of Waukegan, but it’s not just any city map. This map will show you an array of locations in and around Waukegan where you can recycle items that are not normally picked up in your curbside recycling.

Please comment on each entry to let us know whether it was helpful, and if there’s a specific topic you’d like to learn more about. Together, the small changes we make can change the world.

Follow this link to see the Recycling Map of Waukegan. Happy recycling!
