Recycling efforts in Britain going to waste

recycle.jpgBritain is plunging all sorts of cash into recycling. It’s like some sort of crazy green obsession.

The government (and opposition) are making political mileage from talking about it. Increasingly people are said to be doing it. And Greenbang is all for it (whoop yeah).

But it’s not working, apparently, according to The Local Governemnt Association, which has called Britain the ‘dustbin of Europe’.

Ouch.

Here’s what All Headline News has to say about it:

Britain‘s multi-million pound nationwide recycling effort appears to have literally gone to waste after a local group found that the country threw more garbage in its landfills than any other European Union state.

The Local Government Association even noted citizens prefer to just dump their waste then heeding calls for active recycling.

Britain is the dustbin of Europe with more rubbish being thrown into landfill than any other country on the continent,” said Paul Bettison, chairman of the LGA environment board.

    Recycling is the best thing Britain has suceeded with ans still going strong. We have to keep this country looking already as beautiful as it is, not only saving it too.
