Recut: You're (Probably) Recycling Wrong

Mixed-paper recycling at WestRock.
Mixed-paper recycling at WestRock.

A couple years ago, WFPL launched Curious Louisville, a regular series where listeners ask us questions about the city and we investigate to find the answers. And let me tell you, you have not disappointed. We've gotten some really interesting questions, including what happens to zoo animals when they die, why we pronounce Louisville the way we do, whether thehigh-five was invented here, and many others.

But in the past couple years, we've received nearly a dozen questions about one particular topic: Recycling.


Y'all are really, really curious about recycling. And, after two years of asking, you're gonna get your answers. WFPL Energy and Environment reporter Ryan Van Velzer joins us today to tell us what you wanted to know and what he found out.
