I did not see any recycling practised in Lyon or Troyes. Although staff were very good, friendly and helpful, and hostel very comfortable, minimal cooking facilities were a problem for me -although staff were obliging. It seems hostels are not meant for budget travellers so much anymore, but just cheap rooms to stay.
