Visiting a very big Carrefour, I was surprised to see the amount of recycling bins at the entrance. I had time to notice because I was early – supermarkets in France appear to open later than at home, at 8.30am – but even so, they were hard to miss.

The regular bins for batteries, paper and plastic were there. But these were accompanied by special bins for mobile phones and small domestic appliances!

Doing green in the Carrefour supermarkets.

A sight never seen in the Netherlands. We have to go to different locations to neatly get rid of all of these things. Which reminds me that I still have to cycle to the communal waste site to dispose my pile of broken devices…
