Not Waiting For Recycling Laws

"Eco activists waste no time changing mentalities before laws" says this TV news segment from Russia Today.

Recycling innovations are hitting the scene in Moscow, and people are lining up like never before to get involved.

They take us to a recycling plant where all imaginable household items are taken apart, plastic separated from from metal, and the phosphorous mercury and heavy metals inside all electronics are removed for further recycling. Palladium, gold and silver are smelted into units and returned to the precious metal markets.

Greenpeace is also a visible presence, making it possible for people to recycle at markets.

The laws may be long in coming, stuck in bureaucracy - but the people are not!
