Basque households, mums and the 30s to 50s most likely to recycle, says research
26 July 2017 @ 21:01

MOTHERS are 20% more likely to recycle household waste than fathers, according to a recent study.

And residents in the Basque Country put aside the most space in their homes for separating rubbish for potential recycling, with the 35 to 54 age group being those most committed to doing so.

A report titled Recycling habits, commissioned from the Apolda Institute for the 'green' waste management firm Ecoembes shows that 34.4% of mothers in Spain regularly use paper, glass and plastic banks compared with 14.7% of fathers.

In 29.3% of cases, the decision to recycle frequently is made by the whole family, however.

Over three-quarters of Spanish residents between their mid to late 30s through to their mid-50s – just under 77% - set aside 'at least one space' in their homes for waste destined for recycling, closely followed by the over-55s at 72.5%
