Description

A bin for storing green glas for recycling, supplied by the City of Westminster Council. Although local authorities in Britain have taken steps to encourage recycling, setting up sites where people can take their recyclable rubbish, or in some cases actually collecting it, Britain lags behind most other European countries in terms of the amount of waste actually recycled. In 2002, the proportion of British household waste recycled was 11%, compared to 49.7% in Switzerland and Austria, and 48% in Germany.
