Countries don’t recycle; people do. It is a safe bet that some people in essentially every country do recycle – whether in the way of sending materials to a factory to be reconstituted and used again, or in taking something that still has use and recycling it for further, or different use.
According to an Article on GreenOpolis. The United States ranks in at #7 against countries with high marks for their recycling efforts. However, in another study taken by the Environmental Performance Index, the U.S. did not even make the top 10. The EPI study takes into account drinking water health, carbon emissions and disease rates. Here is how both lists pan out:
