FOWC with Fandango: Imitate

We all know them, the bottle banks. We spend time at home sorting them into various colours. There is a section for brown bottles, we have green bottles and also bottles with no colour. We then take pains to put the various glass bottles into the correct space for the right colour. Have you ever thought that when the bottle banks are emptied, they throw all the glass into the same container afterwards.,

Just wondering.

  1. I am impressed that you have separate bins for different colour glass. I’ve never seen that here, we do throw them all in together. The fact that yours are separated makes me think that someone must be doing something with them. We do have to remove the lids before recycling.
    I’m also wondering if you get the urge to sing “Ten Green Bottles” while sorting?

    • We have always had the three different colors for the glass and we must remove the lids. I must add that glass is becoming less and it is more plastic bottles which we also recycle

  2. I think that’s how it’s done. We’ve seen it with our own eyes, here in Switzerland!!!!! So, wonder no more. Same with newspapers, cardboard and ‘just paper’. We now bring it once every 2weeks ourselves to the collection center where it all goes in ONE huge container. The glass and PET still goes in separate bins….

    • I just love those collections. Our village street is filled with piles of newspaper (all nicely bundled), cardboard (a real picture of organisation) and then it is picked up in a few minutes. Not sure where it goes. The school kids used to collect it on the trucks years ago. Not to mention Sperrgut. That is an operation sorting the metal from the rest and not knowing exactly what to do when metal is mixed with something else. You just have to love organisation.

      • That’s because it’s so ultimatively SWISS…. When working at the ETH in Zurich, a dear pHD doc from Germany came to work one day with foam on his lips. He repacked his newspapers several times and still they were refused. Wrong string…. it killed me but he didn’t think it was funny!
