How do other countries recycle?

Recycling not only reduces garbage, it helps conserve the earth’s limited resources. For this reason, people all over the world come up with ideas and work together to recycle. So, what is recycling like in other countries? To find out, let’s compare the recycling methods for a juice container.

In Germany, most beverages come in returnable bottles that can be washed and reused many times, and bottles are collected at various locations around town. Sweden also mostly uses returnable bottles. When you return bottles at the store, you get money back for the bottles. In Denmark, all bottles are returnable bottles. Since it costs money to make new bottles, they make an effort to use the same bottles over and over.
