🙅 Tenacious false belief: The contents of recycling bins end up in the dump.

You've certainly heard people downplaying the importance of putting things in the recycling bin, because "it all ends up in the trash anyway". It is completely false.

In fact, a part (about 21% in 2018) is found there, yes, but mainly because these are materials that shouldn't have been put in the bin in the first place : contaminated materials, hard-to-separate multi-material products, unidentified plastics, tires, toys, etc 🤷

The solution to reduce this share? Education, always education! 👩‍🏫 All the details in this publication from Agence Science-Presse.
