People living in Denmark will need to sort their recycling into ten different containers, under a new deal that aims to cut 0.7m tonnes of emissions and make the country’s waste sector carbon neutral by 2030.

Denmark’s climate minister Dan Jørgensen said that, with the average Danish resident throwing away 800 kg of waste into general recycling a year, people in the country were worse than the European average, which is 490 kg. […]

Under the agreement, which has the support of all parties except for the Danish People’s Party and the New Right Party, Denmark’s municipalities have half a year to draw up a “death list” of incinerators that will be closed down, reducing Denmark’s incinerator capacity from 3.95 million tonnes to 2.6 million tonnes by 2030. …

All ten will have non-compliant items mixed in. It doesn’t matter, though, as they will be mostly merged together again before heading to the landfill.

This sounds exactly like the recycling episode of Penn & Teller's TV show BullSchiff! (not the actual name of the show).

In part of the episode, they had an actor see how many different colored containers he could get people to agree to separate stuff into. I think it ended up being around 8-10!

What is the cost of collecting 10 different containers from every household? Are there 10 different trucks? This is ludicrous on the surface.

I thought the Swedes just conceded that they quit sorting things out at the “recycling” plants and just chucked everything into landfills. But, of course, the citizenry must still comply, because it is “good for them” and “makes them feel like they are doing something”. Isn’t that really close to a pointless, and in this case, costly, religious observance?

When you understand leftism is about power and control it all makes sense.

Something is rotten in the blue trash bin in the state of Denmark.

Screw it. Anything without my name will get tossed into a public trash can.

My city has one trash can for garbage and another for all recyclables. I'm willing to toss my glass, plastic, metal and paper into the recycle bin because it takes almost no work and essentially gives me an extra 64 gallons of disposal per week for free. If I had to work at it, it would just all go into the regular trash.

I see what they’re doing, they take the recycled material, and use it to make more recycling containers! Soon, they’ll have hundreds of containers in front of each house, but nothing going to the landfill.

Same here. The county used to actually recycle the recyclables but I’m pretty sure they just take them to the landfill now. But, hell, we can say “we recycle”.

But they will FEEL GOOD about what they’re doing...regardless of the fact that most of it gets dumped in the ocean.

Who has the yard space to keep ten bins? Who has the extra hour to wheel them to the curb and back? What neighborhood has enough road space for every house to put ten bins on the street? I just gave our recycle bin back because it all goes to the dump anyway.

And what do they make the ten containers out of?

Petroleum products for the win, Alex.
