The book is divided into three sections - "Action and ideas" looks at policy issues and legislation; "The world of recycling" examines other countries' recycling practices, and serves as a resource of ideas to share worldwide; and the "Recycler's A-Z", the main body of the book, contains up-to-date information on a wide range of household and office items.
