Seven In Ten Spanish Houses Have At Least One Recycling Bin
Seven out of ten Spanish consumers (72.5%), say they use more than one bin in their homes, one for waste and one for recyclable goods; plastic, tins and tetra packs.
As reported by corresponsables.com, these figures were the result of a study by the Apolda Institute. According to the website, Spanish homes own an average of 3.1 waste bins.
Large homes in cities tend to own the most (3.2), while homes in municipalities with less than 5,000 people, or inhabited by more than 5 persons, were the ones with the least amount of recycle bins (2.9).
Regarding the different regions, Euskadi (3.7), Navarra and Catalonia (3.5 each) were the ones with the most bins per home, while Galicia (2.6) and Extremadura (2.7) had the lowest.
Among the motivating factors to have recycle bins at home, civic awareness matters for 96.8% of people, and environmental conscience matters for 95.7%. Those who don't recycle blame lack of space for bin storage.
