Recycling is a topic of interest to businesses and households as we increasingly become more aware of the waste we produce.

In this video by the BBC students are being targeted in Newcastle as part of an experiment to see how young people react to images of their rubbish being posted online.

I'm not sure whether naming the student will deter or attract them to recycle but it's an interesting idea.


I don't think it will make a difference. Those who want to recycle already do. Those that can't be bothered won't be swayed by a video of them not doing it. 

Although I reckon it is going to lead to some great videos. First one to put something outrageous in the bin will be an internet sensation. 

lol my bin would look really bad on this! I think these people have gone too far...

Fred, I think that's the whole point of the experiment.
