There is a very lively debate going on about climate change and what we can do about it. There is no doubt that this is absolutely necessary, provided it leads to action very soon. However, I get the slight impression that the mega topic of climate change is causing recycling to be pushed back into the second row. No, recycling will not solve all the world‘s climate problems; that would be too much to expect. Nevertheless, it can help to mitigate a lot of those problems, such as CO2 emissions and material scarcity. Since recycling as it is commonly practiced today in Europe and many other countries in the world is quite a complex matter, a lot needs explaining.
