From Norway (everything or else!) to Guernsey (pay for what you waste) to India (ships) recycling is happening. It should be built in. Stop letting developers build shoebox residences where ther is scarcely place for a bin, let alone a recycling box. Recycling should be obligatory with bins built in to all homes, somewhere in a kitchen with either larger bins outdoors for collection or in close proximity to a recycling center. It's obvious and probably one of the cheaper solutions for reducing waste, carbon footprint and the need for additional waste capacity on island.
Why the contribution is important
It's a simple, lower cost (some up front investment is required) and eas(ier) solution to implement than heating and cooling conversions or solar installation or EV vehicle infrastructure. The island stands to gain material for the ERF at la collette, more organic waste for compost and funds from selling on metal or glass or plastics to secondary processors.
