The photographer of these recycling containers in Portugal notes: “Most Portuguese don’t use recycle bins. On one hand, there aren’t many across the country. On the other hand, people don’t understand the need.” Sounds like it’s an issue of not knowing what is recyclable, as well as likely a shortage of facilities. However, it’s better to ship waste even to other countries for processing than let it go to the dump.
