Solar/bike hybrid recycling vehicles

The vast majority of the pavilions at Expo Milano offer some sort of food service, mostly distributed in disposable vessels. However, recycling is pushed throughout the Expo, with separate bins for paper, plastic, glass and also compostable organic materials.

Gloria Zavatta, a sustainability organizer for Expo, said that the event has a recycling rate of 60 percent, but is still aiming to reach 70 percent. All of these recyclables are ferried away in solar cargo bikes like this one.
