The Vatican recently rolled out a new central waste collection point in Vatican City, which builds on the city’s current recycling practices. With the new system, leaders of the Vatican’s State Governorate hope that the Vatican can set a good example of being a green and non-polluting state by recycling in a more organized way.
The Vatican has been dedicated to its recycling efforts for many years, but this is the first time that it has a central waste collection point.
Catholic News Agency has more information:
A year after Pope Francis released his encyclical on the environment, Laudato si', the Vatican has stepped up its efforts in the recycling game by creating a new central waste collection point within Vatican City.
Announced Nov. 14 by the State Governorate of Vatican City Events Coordination, the new system builds on recycling practices already in place.
With the implementation of the new, more organized system, the leaders of the Vatican’s State Governorate said they hope that the small state “can in some way become a good example of a ‘green’ and non-polluting state.”
