This post is inadequate is the stuff composted to make methne or just burnt to pollute the atmosphere?? also a lot more should be repaired reused or better not bought in the 1st place then trashed.

I live in western Canada and I am appaled at how little we recycle. I have just spent 3 months in the UK staying with three of my sisters and could not believe how much they recycle, the local authorities provide the boxes and it is almost mandatory to use them, infact in some areas it is.

good post, but recycling is a struggle. In some countries, the middle and lower classes really look down on recycling now - possible due to the wonderful materialistic advertising campaigns that bombard 24-7
