Recycling Rates for selected OECD countries

The priority now is to decrease the amount of waste we generate. That means changing our consumption patterns, for example by choosing products that use recyclable material, market fresh produce instead of canned food, less packaging and easily recyclable containers (for example glass instead of plastic). It also means recycling – sorting, collecting, processing and reusing materials that would otherwise be handled as wastes. This graphic presents and compares the trends for recycling of glass and paper for US, Japan, Finland, Germany, Ireland, Italy and Portugal.
