Recycling, Jayhawk-style

Jayhawk recycle bin |

Judi Young Knapp, j’63, and Roy Knapp, e’63, g’69, g’73, may live in Norman, Okla.,– the home of the University of Oklahoma, a fellow Big 12 member– but they still show their Jayhawk pride.

The Knapps, Life Members of the KU Alumni Association, were surprised recently when the city rolled out new recycling bins in KU blue instead of the more common brown, gray or beige color that blends in with the landscape (or Sooner red, for that matter).

They decided to go all out and dress up their bin with a Jayhawk to match. “As KU graduates, we are quite partial to ‘true blue Jayhawk blue,'” said Judi.
