Subject: RE: BS: Doing your Part
When posted in Germany the "Pads" married people who lived in houses and not in the blocks, that the singlies lived in ,had to separate there rubbish.There was a bin for paper , food, metal and plastic which was great. If you chose not to use these bins or if one bin was contaminated with something from a different bin then you got fined. Some one actually went round and physically checked these bins from the army just to make sure no mixed rubbish was going into the system.
Why not introduce something like that everywhere. It would mean less smell and less polution nad all recyclable material was used again. Think of the potential for recycling throughout the world creating jobs for millions of people cleaning out the rubbish and then usingall the material. Endless. The Germans have a knack of getting things right these days. Why do others not follow such a great example.
