Young less committed to recycling

A survey has found that young people are much less committed to recycling their rubbish than older generations. According to the YouGov poll, 57% of 18 to 24 year-olds believe it is very important to recycle as much as household waste as possible, compared with 74% of the over-55s. Younger people are also more likely to believe that the primary responsibility for recycling lies with local authorities. Only 29% of 18 to 24 year-olds think they bear the most responsibility to recycle, compared with 42% of over-55s. The survey also found that 81% of women “feel guilty” when they don’t separate their rubbish, whereas only 69% of men feel the same way.
