Recycling Around the World-What Can Sri Lanka Learn From Other Countries On Recycling Garbage

Recycling around the world varies drastically by country. Sadly, the United States doesn’t measure up to the world’s top recycling nations … not by a long shot. 

To encourage recycling, many states in the US have put 5-10 cent deposits on bottles or drink containers, and there are cities in the United States that recycle by requirement. However the country still has a very, very long way to go; only 32.5% of the total waste in the United States is recycled! This a very low number considering the large population. Perhaps the US could learn from the following countries who take recycling very seriously — so seriously that one has actually run out of garbage!

In honor of America Recycles Day, which falls on November 15th, click through for some super cool recycling ideas that have been put into practice by countries around the world. They are very inspiring to say the least!

What are the top recycling countries in the world? And, what traits do those successful recycling locations possess?…
