I just learned that, up until now, Icelanders didn't sort their garbage! What a shock, I thought everybody (at least in Europe) did that by now! But apparently not... In Belgium we've been sorting it for ages. I don't even remember a time when we didn't have to sort anything, so it must be at least 10 years? Belgium is one of the best garbage-sorting-country's, yes we do have one thing to be proud of :) (well two, we also invented french fries..)
