    Well not on the site in Italy we are stopping on, every thing is recycled when you book in they give you your bins, to empty into the recycle bins, there is no such thing as rubbish, ;) so how do we end up with so much ? :D Bob. 20160920_162903.jpg

    See your three bins and raise you two more. :) From memory the extra two were tins only (plastic had its own bin) and a general rubbish bin which from memory was called something like "undefined" or the Italian equivalent. This was for stuff like old cling film which isn't readily recyclable after being wrapped around a dead chicken. I would be surprised if your site doesn't have these but they are probably outside the gate.

    No rubbish only organic in brown, plastic tins in blue , paper cartons in yellow, then you get the glass with the main bins. :eek:
    I suppose dead chicken cling film goes in plastics, I don't eat chicken dead or alive. :LOL: Bob.
