Two thirds of Brits recycle incorrectly… Meanwhile, Slovenia’s capital is going zero waste.

    Its not only the lack of recycling collections etc thats the problem the lack of pride in our country in picking up rubbish dropping rubbish and feeling good about having clean streets etc. Yesterday I looked out of my window to see a gentleman on a mobility scooter have a drink out of a can finish it and promptly throw it on the grass and drive off. Children throw rubbish down Not everybody but many people just dont don't care.

    I wish this video showed the real picture. Not aware of a park being so close to the Buckingham palace, even if, the authorities would never allow tons of rubbish flying around so close to the Queen's residency... back to the recycling point, i still think that we do more for the environment than most of lets say eastern european countries that dont recycle at all or they are trying but failing! And i also agree with few points above that certain cultures that UK has are not adapted to the ideology of recycling as its simply not in their nature.

    Maybe because there are very few brits left in London and the importance of the message has yet to hit home with the newer arrivals.

    We are killing this planet. We have become a society of throwing everything away from clothes, toys electrical goods and white goods. Years ago electrical items could be repaired and we had a dolls hospital, toys were mended here. I try to recycle everything. I hate the thought of our country sending all our rubbish abroad, why should they have it. We all must think of the future generations. Time is running out.

    Same shit here in Australia as in London. We proudly copy what DOESN'T WORK in the US.

    This country just pays lip service to environmental issues and recycling. Those in charge who could change things for the better just won't because money!

    As a Slovenian I am proud of us. It is quite simple to get an average Joe to recycle. Fines for NOT recycling rise from 800€ up. You learn pretty fast how to put your garbage away correctly. The question arises if this collected trash is really recycled as it is stated. Hope it is, but sadly I have my doubts. Some towns in northern Italy have also a very nice incentive to citizens to recycle...this time with rewards rather than fines. They have a sistem which weighs the correctly recycled trash and than deduces in % your monthly utility bill for as much as you recycled. Simply put the more you recycle, the more you save your money, you can reduce the bills up to 70% of cost. Great idea. It always starts with money but later becomes a good habit and awareness. Should be put in practice everywhere in the world.

    False. Ljubljana/Slovenia exports it's waste just like anybody else. There is more, there are constant burnouts of the highly toxic stuff happening on a regular basis... that's that one that is expensive to export. It is the low number of population that makes a false fairytale picture...but the garbage goes out of the country in major percentage. The separation and collection is on a good rate numbers in Ljubljana, but not in Slovenia... However, under the European expectations for the future which is 75% in 2025. Nearby Treviso, Italy, for instance is on 85% today.
