Car parts, encyclopedias, and scrupulously shining tins: Britain’s weird recycling habits revealed.
People up and down the country have eccentric recycling habits. Especially when it comes to putting out their trash thinking it’s recycling.
A nationwide waste management company has been collecting stories of the weirdest things. All that have been left out in recycling bins by the British public.
Even though complete sets of encyclopaedias, surgical implements and – in one case – an engine block from a Ford Escort. All these recycling habits have been left out for the bin men. However it proves that the UK is enthusiastic about recycling, says the Business Waste company.
“We hear all sorts of weird and wonderful stories from waste operators,” says BusinessWaste.co.uk spokesperson Mark Hall, “And it would be a shame not to share them.”
