The house lights remain on night and day. The floors of the house are washed with the hose. The electricity, water and gasoline are subsidized and have a ridiculous price in Kuwait. Luckily we share this benefit local and expats.
The bags from supermarkets, are free, thick and seem to compete to see who uses more bags. You look a little limited to prevent using them because there are boys / men who bagged your purchase, do not speak English and you end being foolish having to explain that you do not want a bag for each product.
Glass, luckily hardly used this material very occasionally. Those of preserves I recycle. As we have no wine or beer glass to celebrate there is little to recycle in my house.
Batteries, I spent two years with a container full of these, almost put it to my plane to throw somewhere in Spain, after much reflection, I threw them in the trash ..... :( Shame on me!
Paper, I dont buy newspapers either so my stock of paper for recycling is limited to the pages and wrapping paper, paint both recycle or re-gifting.
Packaging, this is where it hurts most, tetrabick bottles for milk or juice, yogurt and other ... soda cans and other trash are what most hurt me.
But now there is light at the end of the tunnel. A company aware with the issue and I guess trying to do business with is putting containers ( I spoke here of the spot in Rumaithiya) and provides weekly collection in your home. Visit their site here.
