Plus, innovative ways to get people to recycle more, including music jingles in Catalonia and Taiwan, and a quiz on what rubbish goes in which bin, with help from residuonvas.cat.

This week's Catalan phrase is 'això fa olor a socarrim'. Literally, 'this smells burnt', it is used when something looks bad, similar to the English-language phrase 'this smells fishy'.
