LaDonna Woodlaw doesn't do much recycling. That's not to say she wouldn't. Woodlaw lives off Evergreen in Detroit, a section of the city that, like most, doesn't have curbside, throw-it-all-together recycling. If she remembers, she'll take a bag of recyclables when visiting her sister's house in Ecorse, which has curbside recycling, she said.
