Recycling and composting are progressing in Europe

Here is another article I wrote  for Cleantechies, this time tackling a vital sustainability issue : our waste, and what we do with it. This post takes a look at what share we are recycling and composting. Here is the introduction :

” According to the European statistics agency, Eurostat, in the 27 members of the European Union, 40% of treated municipal waste was recycled or composted in 2011, up from 27% in 2001.”

As always, I hope you will enjoy this article and share it. If you have any questions or comments I will gladly answer them there.
