LHS Starts Recycle Right Campaign

LHS Starts Recycle Right Campaign

With recycling codes constantly changing, many Lakewood students (and parents) are unclear about what can and cannot be recycled. Starting for the 2023-24 school year, the LHS halls feature student-created posters that advise students on how to properly recycle in the City of Lakewood. These posters urge students to recycle paper, plastics, cans, and cartons and not recycle cellophane wrappers, clamshell plastics, styrofoam and plastic bags.
