Trash or Treasure?


I haven't quite figured out the Recycling system here. Bottles are generally left next to the dumpster for needy people to collect for a redemption value. But often objects that have more life left in them are placed next to the dumpster (rather than inside it) for anyone to take. I have seen all kinds of things: large items like old chairs and here are some smaller items. So I don't know if they recycle more than glass, but there definitely is an unwritten system of reusing.

It IS a central collection point - very clever of Kiev residents.
