Students at the University of Wyoming will hold a demonstration May 8th protesting Laramie’s lack of a glass recycling program. The students who organized the demonstration are part of a class called ‘Youth in Revolt’ that has been studying youth protest movements this semester. They will be gathering signatures for a petition asking the city to start recycling glass again.
Laramie lost its glass recycling two years ago, when ARK regional services cut the program citing high costs. The University of Wyoming closed its own glass recycling program shortly after.
