America is nothing like Switzerland. Having been there last year I have some knowledge of this. Getting around in most town means that you must have a car. Since everything is so spread out here. And public transportation is almost non existence. And most people are too lazy to recycle. I recycle glass, paper, oil, and veggies in my compost pile. Its too hard to find a place that recycles pet. I have some twisty bulbs but most of my fixtures won't take them. I admit that I don't recycle everything that I could. I am also saddened by the fact of how lazy people are and how they just don't care about their trash. Almost every day I have to pick trash out of my yard that my neighbors of passerby just throw out their windows with no regards to wildlife of people. I even went to the park the other day and saw lots of trash lying around in the lake and on the land. It would be great if everyone could do their part to make this world cleaner.
what is earth day?

How much does Canada and America recycle annualy?
It is estimated that about 10 million tonnes of nonferrous and ferrous metal scrap is recycled in Canada each year.
In 1990, about 459,000 tones of materials were recycled in Canada.
The nation made 245.7 million tons of garbage in 2005, about 1.6 million tons less than in 2004, says the Environmental Protection Agency. That works out to about 4.5 pounds per person per day.
Nearly one-third of trash was recycled in 2005, the last year of available government statistics. The EPA has set a goal for the nation to recycle 35% of its trash by 2008. That would be a big change from 1980, when only 10% of trash was recycled.
