Germany best in recycling waste; China tops list of ocean polluters

As per a report by OECD, Germany is the best waste recycler with 68 percent of municipal waste recycled. Germany is followed closely by South Korea and Slovenia. Western nations, generally, are at the forefront on the treatment, more than any other Latin, Asian or African country. Another report, while dated, shows China, followed by Indonesia, at the top of countries polluting oceans the most.
