To understand the different situations in all countries it is necessary to compare the different mentality, financial situation, culture, politic, low and other influencing factors. Therefore, it is not possible to transfer one system from one country to another without special control of all possible situations. In most of the countries, cheap landfilling is popular. In Switzerland, since about 40 years ago landfilling of household waste was not allowed. The small county with 8.5 mi. inhabitants operate 25 incinerator plants for household- and hospital waste. There is also a recycling system in Switzerland, but recycling is too expensive. For this aspect, for most products a small part for the waste management is included in the selling price. The recycler gets this money paid by the waste foundation.
