Recycling in Sweden and Germany.
The total percent of recycled household waste in Sweden is 96%. Sweden is number five in recycling (not just household waste) in the European Union. The Swedish system is also a very well working process, but unlike Germany, Sweden doesnt have a Green Dot programme. Despite that Sweden is very good at sorting its garbage and only has to put 25 kilos per person into deposit (to store at ex. a dump), whereas the rest of Europe has 213 kilos per person. In Sweden the public waste bins have just one hole for everything. Public waste bins in Germany have different sections for different sorts of garbage.
One thing that Swedish people are good at is recycling glass bottles. 99% of all the bottles with deposit are recycled in Sweden...

Correction; "In Sweden the public waste bins have just one hole for everything" Not true, we have of course different sections for different sorts of garbage... (Glass, Metal, Paper, Plastic, etcetera...)
