Recycle This Quiz

Before taking today’s BBC quiz on recycling, I would have liked to think of myself as very pro-recycling. At home I recycle and have done for years, even when it meant a long walk to the drop-off point. At work I currently take anything recyclable home, and am part of a small group working to encourage further recycling in the office.

My score of 3, then, was a disappointment, although perhaps it shows just how confusing and misunderstood the symbols are. Once you’ve done the quiz, you can brush up on all those symbols here, here and here. Let me know how you get on!

    Ditto the above, I have been recycling for over 10 years and first picked up the bug when I lived in Germany. I also scored 3, that is dissapointing but it won’t stop me from continuing to recycle and to drive initiatives in my office as well.

    I! got! 5! too! yahoo!

    Lots of recycling here in Sweden too. One thing I think is really good is that you get money back on all drink cans and plastic bottles, just like the Barr’s glass bottles. No need to throw that plastic bottle straight in the rubbish after drinking your overpriced fizzy water… rant…
