Recycling drop-off bin removal from old Hobby Lobby location

Kevin PowellCity, Solid Waste

The City-sponsored recycling drop-off bins for newspaper, cardboard, and mixed paper will be removed permanently on Wednesday, February 28th from the closed Hobby Lobby store location on 23rd Street. Hobby Lobby has relocated to 3311 Iowa Street.  There will be no recycling drop-off bins at this new location. The City of Lawrence appreciates the nearly 20 years Hobby Lobby on 23rd Street served as the host of these public recycling drop-off bins.

Two alternate locations with recycling drop-off bins for newspaper, cardboard, and mixed paper are Checkers at 2300 Louisiana Street and Hy-Vee at 3504 Clinton Parkway.
