Patch contributors size up recycling in local suburbs.
Lisle is above the national average in terms of recycling, but how active are residents in their efforts? In its annual "Market Facts" feature, Crain's Chicago Business published a series of interactive maps breaking down population, demographic data and consumer habits for the Chicago area.
