Hi Mindy! We are checking in from central Italy during our 5-week bicycle trip there.
Sally and Mario, owners of the house we rented in Umbria, told us about new recycling procedures being rolled out gradually throughout Italy. “To meet EU regulations, we now have bins to recycle plastic, metal, glass, paper and organic waste. They are picked up at the house on a regular basis.”
It is great to see how this recycling effort is being implemented in small towns in rural Italy, and to do our little part to improving how waste is managed.
Ciao from Italy! We are cycling in solidarity with you.
Nancy and Rick
