Recycling

At present the UK is the third most wasteful country in the EU, with each of us generating about 0.5 tonnes of waste each year. Plus when we throw things away that could either be recycled or re-used we are wasting the energy needed to manufacture their replacements.

As an example, in 2005/2006 Oxford City recycled only 19% of its waste, meaning 81% went to landfill where it released harmful greenhouse gases. With Austria currently recycling 60% of its waste there is a lot of room for improvement!
