The Guardian on Recycling in Germany

Really nice article in the Guardian’s Environment section today: A small town in Germany where recycling pays

That’s the second Guardian article I’ve read in the last few weeks that deals with the German recycling system/culture. I find them interesting not because they’re news to me but because they pose an outsider’s view, written to explain the benefits to an interested (?) outside audience. The system works, it’s nothing we think about anymore.

On a related note: here in Munich, bringing waste to the recycling depot is actually free to Munich residents.
