Germany is a world leader in recycling and environmental conservation. We have five different containers for trash:
yellow bag: for recyclable plastics and metals
blue bin: for paper
black garbage: for really yucky stuff like diapers
brown bin: for compost - food scraps and tissues
glass: must be separated into clear, green and brown and walked down the street to large bins

The other four are picked up at the house on a rotating schedule. After a week of using this system it is actually very easy.
