In Newcastle-under-Lyme, England, the local council has introduced a mandatory recycling scheme that calls for residents to separate trash into nine separate bins, with separate containers for paper, clothing, cardboard, garden waste and household slop among others. One woman told The Daily Telegraph newspaper that she and her neighbors have to find a place to put the large wheeled bins for garden waste even though they have no gardens. She also noted that it now takes three trucks to pick up recycling instead of the one used previously.

Three trucks instead of one - Who'da thunk it?
