Recycling rules in England
Recyclable glass, paper, and metal collection is common in England (as in much of the United States). But some cities and towns are going even further. For example, the London boroughs of Barnet, Brent, and Waltham Forest are making recycling compulsory with a "three strikes and you’re fined" policy enabled by the Environmental Protection Act of 1990 (the local town councils are vigilant about its enforcement), and others are likely to follow suit.
