Listen to “Separation Anxiety” (18:30)
Podcast: 99% Invisible (Episode 213)
This is an episode about separating your garbage into the various categories: plastic, paper, glass, compost, etc. Do you do it at home? Or someone does it for you? Waste sorting and management should definitely start at home. It’s only a matter of creating the habit and a system that works in your household.
Interesting and short video on How a sorting machine works.
The article “Those Wasteful Europeans” in The Atlantic is great! The idea that Americans produce the most waste per capita seems to be an old one.
