One more question...

I'm very curious about Scandinavia (Norway, at least) today!

7. So I seem to remember someone implying that you all have composting toilets. This, I know, is not true, although in ten days in Norway I probably peed in as many composting toilets as I have in this country. How prevalent are composting toilets exactly? And what is the story with recycling and compost? In San Francisco, the city comes and picks up our organic waste for us. In New York, recycling is considered revolutionary and if you say compost no one knows what you're talking about. So what is it like in Norway? What about environmental awareness/environmentally friendly lifestyles in general? (Once I told Ola I would drive him wherever he wanted. He said, "Well, I'm not American. I'd rather take the bus." Hehe.)

composting toilets are mainly prevalent in cabins, cottages, summer houses etc. we use normal WCs in houses (except mine, but that's because it's not really a house). compost is something mums try to make their kids do but kids are pretty bad at it and keep throwing stuff in the normal bin. under my sink we have a compost bucket, a litter bin and a paper/carboard bin. downstairs we have the metal/glass section, and also the empty plastic bottle section. you get 50 ore (half a krone) for every 0,5 liter bottle, and 1,5 krone for 1,5 liter bottles if you bring them back to a bottle collection point (normally in supermarkets). recently my mum has taken to collecting all the plastic separately as well, in lillesand they have a plastic collection service. but they don't in aalesund. basically the municipal centres decide how much of their budget they want to spend on recycling / composting / garbage sorting, and so it is different all over norway. but yeah, that's what it's like in my house.
