With the awakening of people's awareness of environmental protection, it is now everyone's responsibility to do a good job in resource recycling. As long as you have the heart, do it as you like, and do it at any time, everyone can become a "recycling expert". Expert", you must have heard this familiar voice more or less. "If you sell wine rubbish" is a common memory of many fifth and sixth graders. In the early days of Taiwan, old people riding tricycles could be seen from time to time shouting along the street, "If there is wine rubbish for sale?" (Taiwanese, it means Do you have empty wine bottles to sell?), recycling empty wine bottles and broken home appliances. At that time, a glass bottle could be exchanged for a dime. Today, recycled items range from treasure bottles, iron and aluminum cans to various kinds of paper, waste batteries, etc. 13 Large categories, good garbage classification has become everyone's daily life. In order to make Taiwan move towards a circular economy and convert waste into renewable resources, the government actively promotes resource recycling and reuse.
From the "Resource Recycling Four-in-One Plan" in 1997 to the implementation of mandatory garbage classification in 2006, the recycling rate has increased significantly.
