Welfare, recycling rules tightened

Rules for collecting social benefits will be tightened as of the new year, with jobless people required to search for work actively and report to labour offices, and welfare recipients expected to work for their local communities. A law charging consumers small deposits on glass and plastic containers also takes effect on January 1, part of a drive to encourage greater recycling in Slovakia.
