Austrians: world champions at sorting waste

Sorting waste is a matter of course in Austria: 96 % of Austrian consumers sort recycling into the appropriate bin. Every one of them collects 115 kg of packaging and waste paper as well as 10 kg of WEEE per year – an achievement worthy of note.

The foundation for environmental awareness and practice is laid early in life. This is why ARA developed the play-and-learn programme ARA4kids. ARA4kids teaches children about waste prevention, litter prevention as well as the separate collection and recycling of packaging.
