Italian Recycling

The Swiss are quite serious about recycling, which is in sharp contrast to the Italian style. This is a partioned Italian trash can in the Milan airport.



Its about as organized as the Alitalia flight desk.

This sort of recycling bin disparity is actually quite helpful for the bleary-eyed, jet-lagged, well-worn traveler like you, Pierre. As you drag your weary winged self off the plane from a tiring jaunt to the Greek Isles, you simply have to look at the garbage can to figure out what part of the world you're in!!!

Organized bin = cold, sensible country more like the scandinavian type.

Unorganized bin = laid back, warm country more typical of the mediterranean.

Absent bin = lazy, earth-abusing superpower (ie, USA) _OR_ developing nation where the items are re-used so many times there is nothing to recycle (ie, Nepal)
